Can you have 2 Global Protect Portals on the same interface on a VM series

L1 Bithead



Just wondering if it is possible to configure a new GP portal and gateway on the same interface as an existing GP protect and gateway are configured


Thanks in advance !

As far as I know, it cannot be possible. Once you use the same interface information for 2 different Portals and Gateways, you will receive these errors while committing the configuration: 


Error: GlobalProtect portal 'Portal1' has used dynamic interface ethernet1/1 as GlobalProtect portal 'Portal2'

Error: GlobalProtect gateway 'tunnel.10' has used dynamic interface ethernet1/1 as GlobalProtect gateway 'tunnel.20'


If you use non-dynamic interfaces, you will not even see the IP address in the second Portal or Gateway's IP address drow down menu.

Not on the same logical interface itself no, but you can create a new loopback interface and use the new loopback interface for the portal and gateway. 


What if we have two static IP addresses on the same interface? Is it possible to configure two different portals on the same network interface?


I have 2 different gateways on the same VM interface.  Under the ethernet interface I added a second IP address and used it for the gateway..  So one is x.x.x.x/24 and the other is x.x.x.y
