Virtual System licensing question

L0 Member

Hi guys,


I have never installed a virtual system so I am wondering how licenses for the Antivirus, URL filter etc are applied, are these applied to the base firewall or do we need to get a license for each virtual firewall hosted on the virtual system?

Those licenses are firewall based not vsys based. What model do you have?

once you have, a 'feature' license like TP or URL, it is valid for the whole platform, so each vsys can benefit from the 1 license
