Panorama VM - Decrease Size

L4 Transporter

Hi Community,


I got a customer who has a VM Panorama with 1 TiB of local storage.

Now we have a SIEM solution installed, where the long-duration logs are stored, so the Panorama disk storage is oversized now.


I know there's a guide to add disk space to Panorama VM, but no solution to decrease space.


Does anyone know, if there is a solution to defragment the filesystem and decrease the parition size for Panorama VM?


I could imagine, that another solution would be to install a new VM with less storage and do a config import.

Has anyone done this before? What do I need to consider regarding communication, certificates, license?


Looking forward to your input


Best Regards

is the disk a secondary logical drive or is it part of the main drive?

@reaper: It's the first drive - the VM got only one

Was this ever sorted? I need to shrink log volume to be able to migrate between hypervisors.
