Multi Virtual system

On a production PAN device if I want to create a new virtual system but I didn't enable the multi virtual system capability option intially would I be able to create a new one with disrupting the production network. The reason I'm asking this is when you create a virtual system all your configurations are tied upto the virtual system name. If I don't have one know how would I be able to create a new one.

Re: Multi Virtual system

By default when you are making changes in a device with a single virtual

system you are working with vsys1 by default.  Enabling multiple vsys

(which also requires a license) will enable you to create a vsys2...vsys3

etc. depending on your platform and license installed. You should not have

any issues although with earlier versions I recall seeing a few errors on

initial configuration push after converting a box from single vsys to

multiple so be careful and inspect your config audit screen before

committing to ensure that there will be no interruption in production

services.

Thank you for the info. But I also heard that to enable multiple virtual system you require a reboot is that true.
