set deviceconfig system vm-interface

Description

The vm-interface is used by malware running on the WildFire appliance virtual machine sandbox to access the Internet. Activating this port is recommended and will help WildFire better identify malicious activity if the malware accesses the Internet for phone-home or other activity. It is important that this interface has an isolated connection to the Internet. For more information, see Set Up the WildFire Appliance VM Interface.
After configuring the vm-interface, enable it by running the following command:
set deviceconfig setting wildfire vm-network-enable yes
