Prepare the Bootstrap Package

Use the following procedure to prepare the bootstrap package.
  1. Create the top-level directory structure for the bootstrap package.
    On your local client or laptop, create the following folders:
    /config
    /license
    /software
    /content
    You can leave a folder empty, but you must have all four folders.
  2. Add content within each folder.
    For an overview of the process, see Bootstrap Package. For details on the files in the /config folder, see Bootstrap Configuration Files.

    /config
      0008C100105-init-cfg.txt
      0008C100107-init-cfg.txt
      bootstrap.xml
    /content
      panupv2-all-contents-488-2590
      panup-all-antivirus-1494-1969
      panup-all-wildfire-54746-61460
    /software
      PanOS_vm-7.1.1
      PanOS_vm-7.1.4
    If you save the keys to the license folder, you can use a file naming convention that works for you but keep the .key extension in the filename. For auth codes, create a text file named authcodes (without a file extension), add your auth codes to that file, and save it to the license folder.
    /license
      authcodes
      0001A100110-url3.key
      0001A100110-threats.key
      0001A100110-url3-wildfire.key
    Use an auth code bundle instead of individual auth codes so that the firewall or orchestration service can simultaneously fetch all license keys associated with a firewall. If you use individual auth codes instead of a bundle, the firewall will retrieve only the license key for the first auth code included in the file.
  3. Create the bootstrap package.
    For VM-Series firewalls, create the image in the appropriate format for your hypervisor.
