PAN-OS HA Clustering and Integrated management and logging

L1 Bithead

Hi, I have questions about PAN-OS HA clustering and management


First, I read the document "HA Clustering Overview - PAN OS Admin Guide". and  I was able to confirm about HA Clustering.


However, there is a part in the HA Clustering part of the PAN OS Admin Guide that I do not check or understand, so I would like to ask a question about it.

1. Is HA Clustering a function that makes multiple PAN OS firewalls into one logical device?
: I understand that HA Clustering is not a feature to configure one logical firewall.
:  HA clustering is understood as the ability to synchronize sessions by grouping multiple firewalls into a group to ensure session handling.


2. Is it possible to perform integrated management and logging for equipment grouped by HA Clustering?
: In particular, I was unable to verify information about unified management and logging among HA Clustering members.
: Seeing that there is no mention of this, it is understood that each device is managed through an individual management interface (GUI or CLI) by default.
: In order to manage and record them in an integrated manner, you can see that panoramas must be linked and used.


Is my understanding correct?


If there is any wrong information, please tell me the correct information.
