Virtual resources for Palo Alto Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) Exam preparations

Yasir Irfan Yasir Irfan Profile: Yasir Irfan


When it comes to Palo Alto Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) Exam preparations, options are quite minimal in terms of virtual resources. As discussed in my previous post one can either relies on Palo Alto PA -200 firewall or their Palo Alto VM 100 firewall, you may need to contact your local Palo Alto team to get the trial access with license.

If you got hold of Palo Alto VM 100 firewall then preparing the lab scenario using Unified Networking Lab is quite easier.

You can find out more details about Unified Networking Lab by visiting their web site and I recommend you to download the unetllab from their website. Still it’s in beta version yet it is more powerful. You can simulate scenarios using many vendors’ virtual products.

Once you downloaded and installed the Unified Networking Lab do follow the instructions mentioned in this blog by Andrea the creator of Unified Networking Lab. This blog shows you how to copy the Palo Alto VM 100 firewall into Unified Networking Lab

In the next post I will show how to create the topology recommended by Palo Alto for   the Palo Alto Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) Exam.
