Will the panorama log collector collect logs if synchronization with firewalls is disabled?

L0 Member

I have a panorama server.

System Mode panorama


If I set up a log collector and connect firewalls to the panorama, without synchronizing shared policies and templates.
Will the panorama log collector collect logs if synchronization with firewalls is disabled?

 

That is, I don’t want to manage firewalls from the panorama at the moment, but I want it to collect all the logs from the firewalls.

If I need to in the future, I will enable synchronization of policies and templates

Hello @d.polynin

 

yes, this is possible. After you register a Firewall in Panorama and assign Firewall’s serial number to log collector you can start receiving logs without having Panorama to manage configuration by Device Groups/Templates.

 

Kind Regards

Hi Pavel,

thank you very much for the answer

to add to the 'yes" from @PavelK : you don't actually need to disable anything if your intent is to one day manage the firewalls from panorama

as long as you don't add them to a device group or template, you won't push any configuration down to them. This saves the extra steps of going to disable which will lead you to needing to re-enable in the future
