Bootstrapping allows you to create a repeatable and
streamlined process of deploying new VM-Series firewalls on your
network because it allows you to create a package with the model
configuration for your network and then use that package to deploy
VM-Series firewalls anywhere. You can bootstrap the VM-Series firewall
off an external device (such as a virtual disk, a virtual CD-ROM
or a storage bucket such as AWS S3 or Google Cloud bucket) to complete
the process of configuring and licensing the VM-Series firewall.
You can either bootstrap the firewall with basic initial configuration
and licenses so that the firewall can register with Panorama and then
retrieve its full configuration from Panorama, or you can bootstrap
the complete configuration so that the firewall is fully configured
on boot up.
