Hi, Palo Alto firewall is VM in ESXi. In the ESXi, I can see the firewall interface e1/1 , e1/2 and e1/3 are up. but I do not know why we can see the firewall e1/3 is down. Anyone can advise this?  Please see the below. Thank you

On the VMware side of things you should be using VNic 1,2,3, and 4 for the 4th being tied to Ethernet1/3. I would verify that the VNIC is actually correct on the ESXi side of things so that the interface mappings are actually correct on the firewall. Also make sure that the VNIC 4 is actually set to use vmxnet3.
