Install the VMware NSX Plugin

To deploy the VM-Series for NSX solution, you must install the VMware NSX plugin on Panorama. If you are upgrading to PAN-OS 8.0 and already have integrated VMware NSX and the Palo Alto Networks VM-Series firewalls configured in your environment, the plugin will be installed automatically and your existing configuration is maintained.
If another version of the plugin is currently installed, selecting Install removes it and installs the selected version.
  1. Download the VMware NSX plugin from the Palo Alto Networks Customer Support website.
  2. Select PanoramaPlugins.
    1. Select Upload.
    2. Select Browse and locate the plugin file on your management device.
    3. Select Install in the Action column to install the plugin. Panorama will alert you when the installation is complete.
    4. Select the version of the plugin and click Install in the Action column to install the plugin. Panorama will alert you when the installation is complete.
    When installing the plugin on Panoramas in an HA pair, install the plugin on the passive peer before the active peer. After installing the plugin on the passive peer, it will transition to a non-functional state. Installing the plugin on the active peer returns the passive peer to a functional state.
