Upgrading Panorama

L3 Networker

I'm looking to upgrade Panorama (virtual)  from 9.0.x to 9.1.x and then eventually to 10.x.   Currently, the Panorama is running in legacy mode.  When I upgraded to 9.0, I increased the system disk to 81GB, so no issues here. 


It seems leaving production panorama in legacy mode is not recommended. Per the documentation, it seems I have to add a 2TB disk.  We currently have a logging disk, but that is only 500GB.  I don't believe that I'm able to increase the current 500GB disk to 2TB.  I think I have to migrate the 500 to 2TB, is that correct?


I'm hesitant to add a 2TB disk, since now we use Cortex Data Lake for logging, seems like a waste of disk space.

@securehops Legacy mode will not be supported in 9.1/10 and to convert to Panorama mode, the appliance will need to see exactly 2TB disk. You will not be able to expand the existing disk. You will either have to add 2TB disk or convert Panorama to "management-only" mode


See article below: 


"Expanding the log storage capacity of an existing logging disk is not supported, and Panorama does not recognize the additional storage capacity."





Thanks.  That's what I figured.  I don't believe Management-mode is an option, since that requires a log collector
