migrating a VM firewall to availability zones within Azure?

L4 Transporter

My Azure region has recently become availability zone capable. Is there a recommended process for converting/migrating Palo VM firewalls so they make use of this feature?

My current thinking for the method is to take a backup of the gateway. And also to export a named config. Followed by:

- Delete the gateway in Azure.

- Create a new gateway (from Marketplace) with the same name, subnet, and ip address as the old.

- Once the new gateway is up and reachable, import the named config.

- Update the license/subscriptions, as saved in the Palo portal, with the new gateway ID.

Is there a better way? Or any missing steps?
