What happens if I change mgt IP?

Not applicable

Hi folks -

Just starting to deploy over here and I'm going through some mental exercises regarding pre-staging of firewalls.  I have about a dozen PAN's in my possession that I need to configure and then will ship out to branch offices...   I'd like to add these firewalls to Panorama now, so will obviously need to give the firewalls a management IP.  However, once I ship them and they arrive at their final destination, I'll need to change the management IP to match a network available at that local site.  Once I change the mgt IP of the firewall, will Panorama still be able to see it?  Will this cause any other problems?

Thanks much,

- Dave

Dave,

This shouldn't cause an issue since you don't actually configure an IP address for firewalls within Panorama, just a serial number (to make sure they stay in the correct device groups).  All other configuration related to Panorama is on the firewall itself, so as long as the new address range that the firewall has can route to the IP address that is configured for the Panorama server you shouldn't have an issue.

Makes sense, Mike...just wanted to confirm that.  Thanks....
