If you have a VM ELA, you can share the contract with
other administrators in your enterprise and invite them to share
the license token pool.
If your enterprise has purchased a VM-Series
ELA, your ELA administrator can invite you to share the contract
and share the license token pool so that you have access to VM-Series
firewall auth codes which enable you to deploy VM-Series firewalls
on demand. When you receive a grant for access to the VM-Series
ELA, you get an email notification that includes a link to log in
to the Palo Alto Networks Customer Support Portal (CSP) and you
firewall models and how many you are entitled to use; the corresponding
number of VM-Series ELA tokens are deposited in your account.
Check your email inbox for the grant notification.
The notification includes the email address of the ELA
administrator who has invited you to share the VM-Series ELA.
Accept the grant.
You must review the terms and accept the EULA and the support
agreement before the ELA admin can allocate tokens which enable
you to deploy VM-Series firewalls.
Log in to the Palo Alto CSP.
VM-Series Auth Codes
You must Agree and Accept the EULA and support agreement
to accept the grant. If you reject it, the ELA Admin who gave you
the grant receives an email notification that you declined the grant.
Do make sure to let the ELA administrator know that you have accepted
the grant so that you he/she can allocate the VM-Series firewall
models and quantity that you can deploy.
you belong to multiple accounts on the CSP and accidentally accept
the grant in to the wrong account, you must request the ELA administrator
to resend the grant to you. Do not start using the auth code to
provision firewalls until you accept the grant in the correct account.
Verify which VM-Series models and how many are allocated
After the ELA administrator allocates the VM-Series firewall
models and number of instances you can provision, you can select
VM-Series Auth Codes
view which models and how many of each are allocated for you. For example,
the grant in the following screenshot displays the auth codes that
enable you to deploy 10 instances each of the VM-50 and the VM-500.
you deploy firewalls and register them to the CSP, the number of
provisioned firewalls is incremented. The
displays the ratio of provisioned to
total available for each model.
