I am installing NGFW in Virtual edition and would like to whether the local manager is available on Virtual & Software editions as well or only supported on 64-bit hardware appliance and I will need to have a dedicated SMC for management of the Virtual Firewall.
Kindly please let me know
I believe local manager feature is only available on hardware appliance products.
I also believe that when ordering a virtual appliance entitlement, it is possible to include a SMC-0 for managing the virtual appliance, at low or no cost. Please check with your sales rep or reseller.
