Create a Support Account
A support account is required to access software updates and to get technical support or open a case with Palo Alto Networks technical support.
For all licensing options except for usage-based licenses that are currently only available in AWS, you require a support account so that you can download the software package required to install the VM-Series firewall. The support account also allows you to view and manage all assets—appliances, licenses, and subscriptions—that you have registered with Palo Alto Networks.
If you have an existing support account, continue with Register the VM-Series Firewall.
