Recommended config for Globalprotect on Azure active-active LB sandwich architecture?

L0 Member

We are running two active-active VM-300s at Azure using the common firewall architecture reference doc (two Azure standard load balancer sandwich). Now looking to enable Globalprotect gateways and was wondering what best practice would be for external access - use a single address on external Azure load balancers and load balance to VM-300s with floating IP configured on firewall loopback, or bypass the Azure LB and go directly to the Azure external IPs on each VM-300 for gateway access? From what I've read it appears both approaches have been used. Any comments/experiences are appreciated - thanks.

You ask a good question but in my opinion maybe test with the Azure LB just in case as cloud load balancers protect from some attacks and DDOS.

Answer (from Palo cloud consulting engineer) was to set up gateways directly on firewalls using their external IP addresses. The portals can be load balanced via single address. Works as advertised.
