Adding 4th NIC to Palo Alto VM in Azure

Can a 4th NIC be added via the Azure Portal to a Palo Alto VM that was deployed via the Marketplace? I see only 3 interfaces are created, and the 4th be added after the fact? Thank you.

Hello @twilson63 

Yes, you can add/append more NICs to the firewall nodes.

The virtual machine "hardware" where the firewall runs on defines the max. number of NICs. The first NIC is used for management, the others can be used for data or HA.
