The VM-Series Deployment Guide says we can add additional disk space of 40GB to 2TB for logging
You'll need to add an additional disk of 2TB (or less) to the VM and then reboot the appliance, the reboot process will mount the second disk as a logging partition
I tried to add an additional disk of 16G to the VM and then reboot this appliance.
But I can not log-in the appliance and the console shows "Cache data unavailable" after reboot.
Few minutes later, It's can be log-in and working. But I can not see the new disk or new partition by "show system disk-space" or "show system logdb-quota".
My VM-100 already upgraded to version 7.0.4.
You may want to open a support case to have that looked at, it should work simply by adding a fresh disk and rebooting the appliance
You can only have one virtual disk...You can't continually add a second, third, or fourth...etc if you find yourself running out of diskspace.
I originally made that mistake and had a 500GB partition. I added an extra 1.5TB and while the OS saw the space it couldn't allocate to it. I had to delete the original 500GB partition and just allocate the 2TB.
There's a "Note" in the "Virtual disk" section that describes this limitation, but I missed it (of course initially).
"By default, the Panorama virtual appliance is set up with a single disk partition for all data, and ~10GB of this
space is allocated for log storage.
The Panorama virtual appliance by default installs with a virtual disk of size 34GB of which 10.89GB is used
for logging. To enable more than the ~10GB of storage, use the following procedure to create a new virtual disk
that can support between 40GB to 2TB of storage capacity.
The Panorama virtual appliance can only use one virtual disk."
@Brandon_Wertz: you can actually have 2. you start off with the initial disk the panorama is installed to that comes with a 10GB log partition, afterwards you can add a second disk up to 2tb which will be mounted as the log partition after the panorama is booted up again, the procedure to mount this new drive is described here on page 27: Panorama Administrator's Guide 6.1 (English)
@reaper I thought I included that part in my post, maybe I didn't (where I quoted it?) A 10GB partition might as well be conisdered nothing.
10GB is indeed very small, if you make your initial disk larger the surplus will be added to the log partition, but if you decide to increase the log partition later that partition will be lost
you can add a second disk, it will mount as sdb1:
admin@Panorama> show system disk-space Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda3 3.8G 1.6G 2.1G 44% / /dev/sda5 7.6G 1.5G 5.8G 20% /opt/pancfg /dev/sda6 3.8G 1.9G 1.7G 54% /opt/panrepo tmpfs 1005M 0 1005M 0% /dev/shm /dev/sdb1 16G 195M 15G 2% /opt/panlogs
if you look at the partitions, the previos sda8 partition will have unmounted in favor of the newly added sdb
admin@Panorama> show system disk-partition Disk /dev/sda: 36.5 GB, 36507222016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4438 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 1 250 2008093+ 83 Linux /dev/sda2 251 749 4008217+ 83 Linux /dev/sda3 750 1248 4008217+ 83 Linux /dev/sda4 1249 4438 25623675 5 Extended /dev/sda5 1249 2245 8008371 83 Linux /dev/sda6 2246 2744 4008186 83 Linux /dev/sda7 2745 2994 2008093+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda8 2995 4438 11598898+ 83 Linux Disk /dev/sdb: 17.1 GB, 17179869184 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2088 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 1 2088 16771828+ 83 Linux
so you could opt to stick with the initial 10gb of log partition, then migrate to a larger secondary disk. if at one point you need even more space you could export the logs, unmount the secondary, mount a larger secondary, import logs
