You can use the management port for what its intended for and at the same time you could use it as HA1 link. There is nothing special you need to consider/configure to use it for these 2 functionalities

i thought thew HA1 connection between two mgmt palo alto need to be dedicated , so from what you saying i can use the mgmt port for both HA functionality and for mgmt port roles"dns , updates etc"

The recommendation is to use the dedicated HA1 port for HA1 (for deviced that have a dedicated HA1 port). For smaller firewalls a dedicated port is still recommended but depending on your port requirements the might be no dataplane port left for HA1.

In any case I always use the mgmt port also for HA1 - at least as HA1 backup.
