Why does the firewall boot into maintenance mode?

If you have purchased the VM-1000-HV license and are deploying the VM-Series firewall in standalone mode on a VMware ESXi server or on a Citrix SDX server, you must allocate the minimum memory required by you VM-Series model.
To fix this issue, you must either modify the base image file (see How do I modify the base image file for the VM-1000-HV license?) or edit the settings on the ESXi host or the vCenter server before you power on the VM-Series firewall.
Also, verify that the interface is VMXnet3; setting the interface type to any other format will cause the firewall to boot into maintenance mode.
