Can we chose the Panorama OS Version in Azure?

Hello

 

I deployed the Panorama in my Azure environment. The VM came with the version 10.0 by default. I would like to put it in 9.1.4 as it is more stable. how can I do that?

 

Please help

Hello

 

I am able to get to 9.1.4 for Panorama in Azure.

 

First, I started deploying the Panorama in Azure from Market Place. I input all the details (Names, Resource groups, NSG's, Networking info etc) in the process of deployment and come to the last step of creating the VM. Before creating the VM you should be able to download the Azure ARM template.

 

Once I downloaded the template, you will get a zip folder which contains two files. "Parameters" and "template".

 

Open the template file and look for the below code. As you can see in the version change it from "Latest" to "9.1.2" and then run the ARM templates. Once you successfully run this updated ARM template, your panorama with Version 9.1.2 will be deployed. Make sure your Panorama has internet access and download the updates and from there you can update the software from 9.1.2 to 9.1.4. i did the same for two Panoramas in my environment and it worked.

 

One more thing, in Azure you have 9.1.1 and 9.1.2 as available version. you cannot deploy 9.1.4 directly since that version is not available

 


"name": "[parameters('virtualMachineName')]",

],
"properties": {

},

}
},

Thanks!  I missed the template download when I tried this yesterday.  Rebuilt the VM successfully with the method described.
