Thank you kiwi for taking the time to reply. Let me give you some background information. What i'm trying to do is simple. I EVE-NG with PA V8.5 configured. I'm trying to run a lab with Palo A, Palo B, PC A, and PC B. both palo altos will be integrated to the Panorama. This is all for self training purposes. I was told that, i cannot use Panorama without Evaluation License. Hence, why i need to get one. In this scenario, my company will not come to play. So, is it possible to run this simulated lab as mentioned above without the Evaluation License? What do i need to do?


You can get evaluation licenses from your account team, which is why @kiwi recommended that you reach out to them. As long as your company has an existing relationship with PAN, you should have an Account Manager (AM) or Sales Engineer (SE) that you can reach out to. They'll happily generate some eval licenses for you so you can play around in your lab environment for a limited period.

Outside of that, you can spin these up in AWS or Azure via PAYG and simply pay on an hourly basis for what you have spun up. Since you're just doing some testing it won't be that expensive as long as you remember to spin them down when they aren't needed.
