I have a question while testing.
If I'm wrong, anyone please feel free to leave a comment.
1. Check if an issue occurs in the service traffic processing part when changing the instance type
> Since there is no change in the settings, traffic processing is normal, but the throughput changes depending on the instance.
> ex) m5.2xlarge(vCPU 8, 16G) : 6Gbps > m5.xlarge(vCPU 4, 9G) : 3Gbps
2. Confirmation of License Changes
> Paloalto licenses are identified by a unique CPU-ID and UUID.
> Since the CPU-ID changes when the instance type is changed, it is essential to deactivate the license before changing the instance type.
> If I apply the license again after changing the instance, it can be used normally.
3. Setting change part of Panorama that is linked with the firewall
> When re-applying the license, a new S/N is created, so there is no need to change the settings in the firewall. However, in Panorama, it is necessary to re-link with the changed S/N of the firewall.
If anyone has experienced any of the above symptoms or knows a solution, please share with me.
Thanks in advance,

Hi @CHOE-KyungJun ,
Are you saying that you are having issues with licensing after recreating a VM? Are you seeing a valid license when you type in the command "show system info" on the new VM?

Thank you for your reply
I didn't recreate the VM. I simply changed the instance type.
The link below confirms that the license needs to be deactivated before changing the Cloud instance type.
However, in actual testing, CPU-ID does not change and S/N does not change either.
I would like to know why the symptoms are occurring.
AWS(M5.2xlarge > M5.xlarge) / Azure(DS3_v2 > D8s_v3)
