Here in the Community you will find everything you need to get started with the tool--videos, blogs, a user's guide, and most importantly a place to ask questions and collaborate with others. Post all your questions on the discussion forum.

Features of the Migration Tool include:

  • Third-party Migrations to a Palo Alto Networks firewall
  • Adoption of App-ID and User-ID
  • Policy optimization to clean and improve policies and objects
  • Consolidation of third-party firewalls into multiple virtual systems
  • Centralized management with Panorama

The Community is a one stop shop for migrations. You can submit feature requests, talk with other experts, and learn how to migrate.

I've seen Migration Tool OVA for ESX 5.5.


Could it work on ESX 5.1?  I've been working in lab environment on ESX 5.0.


Would you recommend an older release to work with ESX 5.1?

I didnt check to be honest. But if not you can download the vmware player version and migrate to ESX5.0? At the end you only needs to convert the disk. There is a procedure form the VMware site to convert a vmdk files to be imported into ESX but im not the Vmware expert sorry :-) Hope that helps
