M500 Change Log Collection Interface from the Management to the Dedicated Eth 1 and 12

 

Currently we have 2 M500 running in log collector mode.

 

All the Firewalls are sending logs  to M500 on its Management interface .

Panorama M100 also talk to M500 via its Management interface.

 

Currenly seems our traffic has increased and we are send lot of logs to M500 on its Management Interface.

 

So I need to use Eth1 and Eth2 on each M500 for log collection

 

Need to know if this is possible now without causing major outage?

@MP18,

The modification to the interfaces will disconnect the firewalls momentarily until you get everything updated. However, that won't effect anything vital to traffic flow and won't cause any outage to network traffic. The logs will cache on the firewall and once you have them pointed at the new IP the logs will be transported to the M500 as expected.
