ESXi deployment question for Palo -VM series (L3 Mode)

L2 Linker

I'm having trouble interpreting this link for deployment scenarios of the vm series Palo Firewalls.  Looking for clarification...


We have an ESXi cluster with 3 hosts running vSphere Distributed Switches.  Our plan is to have one Palo VM-300 in the cluster and it will have the gateways (SVI's) for VM's on all ESXi hosts.  I'm questioning if this will work.  I'm questioning how a VM on host without the Palo will reach it's gateway.


Can this one Palo take traffic from all VM's across all hosts? 


I feel like I'm missing something here.

According to this link


I should be able to do 40 zones on the VM-300 but for some reason it only allows 15 as it errors when I get to 16.  I'm sure the license is installed as I have a serial number and it shows a VM-300 license.  I've tried rebooting but still no joy.
