Adding Interfaces to Azure Palo Alto VM

How can we add interfaces to a PLao Alto VM because using Dashboard deployment, just 3 interfaces are deployed but in PAYG deplymnet for VM-300 4 interfaces are supported.

you may alter the ARM templates on github. That is the fastest way. 


I made one for myself with 8 interfaces, using a Standard_DS4_v2 instance on a premium Storage account.


What I would like to do, is change the template to install the VM with managed OS disk, that is the next step. 


you can checkout the files I have created -

Adding NIC to VM in azure is only possible via Azure CLI v2.0 using the following steps:

    - Create a NIC in the desired subnet using Azure Portal, or use Azure CLI version 2.0. This NIC should be in the same VNET as VM-Series.
    - Shutdown VM-Series
    - Attach the NIC using Azure CLI v2.0 commands

 # az vm nic add -g MyResourceGroup --vm-name MyVm --nics nic_name1 nic_name2

If that does not work then you need to use ARM template as stated by Michel.
