Palo Alto laboratory

L0 Member

Hi, I would like to create a laboratory. Where I will use Palo Alto (PA-3050). Is there any possibility to create something like a virtual machine for 10 users from this one PA? I would like 10 people to use this one at the same time.


If anyone knows what is the solution to my problem, I would like to ask for an answer and to write how to do it, thank you and best regards.

You can configure virtual system on your firewall to assign it to dedicated users for labs. 


Pls refer below link to configure and more info about virtual systems.

VSYS is the easiest solution, and really the only way to give users their own playground. Keep in mind however that if this isn't a LAB SKU you'll need proper licensing to activate multi-vsys on the system, and that your PA-3050 only supports a max of 6 VSYS. 


I would personally recommend simply getting 10 VM-50 LAB bundles for something like this. The cost will likely amount to a wash if the PA-3050 is already a LAB SKU. If it's not, it's going to be significantly cheaper to maintain 10 VM-50 LAB bundles than maintaining that PA-3050 in a LAB environment with production licensing.
