Hello Catlikesbest@anuruddhadi,

To increase the log buffer for your PA VM300 Firewall in Azure by adding an additional 2TB managed disk.
Stop your VM-Series firewall to ensure that no processes are using the disk during the change.
In the Azure Dashboard, go to the Virtual Machine to which you want to add the disk.
Select Disks, then Create and attach a new disk.
Fill in the details for the new disk, such as the size (2TB as you mentioned), and any other required configurations.
Save the changes to attach the new disk to your virtual machine.
Start the firewall once the disk is successfully attached.
After attaching the disk through the Azure portal, you may need to configure the firewall to recognize the new disk and start storing logs on it. This could involve formatting the disk, creating file systems, and adjusting the logging configurations to point to the new disk space. Specific instructions for these steps can be found in the technical documentation or support forums for the PA VM300 or by consulting with Palo Alto Networks support directly.

I hope this will help you!!!!!


Best Regards,
