This Azure HA Template Allows Launching an Additional VM-Series into a Resource Group.

The Purpose of this template is to allow you to launch a second VM-Series into an existing resource group because the Azure Marketplace will not allow this.

You will still be responsible for configuring your own Azure HA settings within the Azure Portal and the VM-Series firewall. Please refer to the VM-Series deployment guide for 10.1.0 for configuration details. DEPLOYMENT GUIDE

Manual Approach

If you choose to take a different approach you can do the following

  1. Launch a VM-Series firewall using the latest which is 10.1.0 (only needed if you don't have an existing VM-Series launched)
  2. Use Azure CLI to launch a second VM-Series running PAN-OS 8.1 into the exact same Resource Group as the first firewall
