Perform Initial Configuration of the VM-Series Firewall on KVM
Use the virtual appliance console on the KVM server to set up network access to the VM-Series firewall. By default, the VM-Series firewall uses DHCP to obtain an IP address for the management interface. However, you can assign a static IP address. After completing the initial configuration, access the web interface to complete further configurations tasks. If you have Panorama for central management, refer to the Panorama Administrator’s Guide for more information on managing the device using Panorama.
If you are using bootstrapping to perform the configuration of your VM-Series firewall on KVM, refer to Bootstrap the VM-Series Firewall on KVM.For general information about bootstrapping, see Bootstrap the VM-Series Firewall.
