Sure thing, here is a link to the VM:

Please be sure to read the read the document (posted earlier) for details on the setup...


BTW, I am working on an upgraded version, but I haven't had the time to finish it just yet.  It will have all the new templates for PA-30xx, etc added as well...

Thanks for that - I'm downloading it now, and I'll play with it some time in the next week or so.

Re: Cacti - Templates

Well, I managed to make it work on VMWare player - but I couldn't get it to import into my full-on VMWare ESX-i cluster, which kinda sucks. I don't know why it wouldn't work. :-( I'll have to investigate more.

I do notice you've done it on an earlier version of Cacti than I have been using - I'm running Cacti 0.8.8a, and your VM is 0.8.7i. Is there a huge difference between Cacti 0.8.8 and 0.8.7?

We recently upgraded our PA 5020's to 5.0.5 and the templates stopped working. Is there a version compatible with PAN OS 5.0.5?

I don't believe there is anything wrong with the Cacti templates, rather you need to enable SNMP...In 5.x the default SNMP behavior changed.

Darren.g,

The VM will operate within ESXi, but you will have to convert the image...this is a VMWare issue.  The converter (and instructions) should be available at vmware.com...

As I mentioned in the document, this is a very stock image of CentOS and hasn't been upgraded for roughly a year.  I am working on releasing an updated version, but haven't had the time to package it completely.  However, you can easily upgrade the VM by logging in as root and issue the command "yum -y update".  Feel free to read up on this prior to upgrading it.

Thanks,

Kameron

Kameron.

Yes, I got it working by running it through the VMWare converter - it's now running on my ESXi cluster no problem.

I'm aware of how to upgrade the Linux install, but I'm wondering if upgrading the Cacti installation will break the Palo Alto templates you installed - or will it upgrade them along with the process? Have you actually upgraded to Cacti 0.8.8 without breaking the Palo Alto templates in the VM?

Cheers and thanks.

Darren.g,

Great news!

I haven't had any problems upgrading to 0.8.8...of course your mileage may vary.  :smileyhappy:

Thanks,

Kameron
