I started with a Panorama (pan mode) VM 9.1.12-h3 and we only had a 200GB virtual logging disk (this was a throwback to when the system was originally built on PAN 4.6). We needed to add more logging space and wanted to add a 2TB virtual logging disk. A system limitation prevents you from adding an additional disk if the existing disk is less than 2TB.
I decided to rebuild Panorama on a new VM with a new logging disk of 2TB. I created the new system from the 9.1.12 OVA, exported the configuration from the old Panorama and imported onto the new. Everything in that respect is working well and we are now logging to the 2TB disk on the new Panorama.
Now my issue is that I want to be able to access the logs that remain on the old Panorama, through the Monitoring tab on the new Panorama. The indication to me that this was possible is described here:
Migrate a Panorama Virtual Appliance to a Different Hypervisor (paloaltonetworks.com)
In step 10, part 1: To maintain access to logs stored on the old Panorama virtual appliance, change to Log Collector mode and add the Dedicated Log Collector to the new Panorama virtual appliance.
However, when I log onto the CLI of the old Panorama and enter the command:
> request system mode logger
