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.
