You cannot specify the management IP address and netmask configuration for the VM-Series firewall on AWS. If defined, the firewall ignores the values you specify because AWS uses a back-end metadata file to assign the management IP address and netmask.
*The IPv6 default gateway is required if you include an IPv6 address.
**The
mgmt-interface-swap
operational command pertains only to a VM-Series firewall on AWS or GCP.
***The
op-cmd-dpdk-pkt-io=off
is for disabling DPDK on the VM-Series firewall on ESXi, KVM, and GCP (DPDK is enabled by default).
**** The
vm-series-auto-registration-pin-id
and
vm-series-auto-registration-pin-value
are required for two use cases:
  • Activation of site licenses—AutoFocus or Cortex Data Lake—with Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) license options of the VM-Series firewall.
  • Retrieve and install the device certificate on the VM-Series firewall.
