Migrate Esxi Panorama (Legacy Mode) to Aws Panorama (Panorama Mode) ..PA Gurus please help

Hi Team

Below is my scenario-


Current Production Panorama

Hosted on ESXi

Mode- Legacy

PAN OS- 8.1.17


Target Panorama

Hosted on AWS

Mode - Panorama (Already license with different SN and have some location NGFW integrated with it)

PAN OS - 10.0.6


My goal is to migrate from ESXi hosted Legacy Panorama to AWS hosted Panorama(Panorama mode).


Following is the queries I have-


1.Shall I first change the mode of ESxi Legacy Panorama to Panorama mode, and then upgrade the ESXi Panorama to match that of AWS Panorama and then export (or Merge the configuration using expedition, I have never tried) the configuration and import it into AWS hosted Panorama.


2.Shall I directly import the ESXi Legacy mode Panorama (currently 8.1.17) configuration after merging to AWS hosted Panorama.


I have been through various article of PA for migration and mode change of panorama but am getting little confused.


If you guys have any other alternative way to process, it will be very helpful.


Thanks a lot in advance.
