Different deployment mode in different VSTS

L0 Member

Hi All,


I would like to know whether it is possible to use different deployment mode (L3 or L2) for 2 VSYS of a same physical paloalto firewall box. 


We have 5620 and 5680 model. 


Thanks and regards

Hi @ChandrajitB , If you are talking about interface modes then yes it is possible to have different deployment modes for vsys within same firewall. This is because a vsys is an independent virtual firewall that you can separately manage within a physical box. Each vsys have its own security policies, interfaces etc.


Hope it helps you!
