Set Up the Panorama Virtual Appliance
The Panorama virtual appliance consolidates the Panorama management and logging functions into a single virtual machine. To enable the use of an existing VMware virtual infrastructure to centrally administer and monitor Palo Alto Networks firewalls, install Panorama on an ESXi server or in vCloud Air.
You can’t use the Panorama virtual appliance as a Dedicated Log Collector. You must Set Up the M-Series Appliance in Log Collector mode to have dedicated log collection capabilities. However, you can use the Panorama virtual appliance to manage Dedicated Log Collectors. These topics assume you are familiar with the VMware products required to create the virtual appliance, and don’t cover VMware concepts or terminology.
