    If you install VMware tools on vFMC does it survive upgrades? Also, is there a guide to installing this?

      I have not had any issues with VMware tools or installing the tools….however, I am not a VMWare experts so I don’t have a guide. I can just tell you my experience with this…
      thanks for writing!

        And I guess I should verify but you’re not talking the checkbox in the web gui right?

    HI Todd,

    you have mentioned about the option of increasing the RAM of the FMCv to enhance the performance.
    Can we increase the RAM of the Virtual Machine( after the FMCv is build on it), I mean does it take into effect by FMCv ?
    Can you please share the steps to increase the RAM, if you have. thank you :)

      you have to shutdown the machine and then add the ram, and then power back up

    Hi Todd,
    we are using 2 * vFMC with 8 FTD (2130) in a LAB just now before moving them into Production. If we lose the vFMC how would you recommend moving my FTDs to the other vFMC. They are totally separate entity’s as HA is not supported in the vFMC’s. Cisco TAC tell me that backups/snapshots/Veeam is not supported for the virtual FMCs. I’m kind of stumped at the minute. A manual build after re-registering would take me days.
    Love reading your tips n tricks. Must join your classes.
    Regards

      With any FMC you need to back those up daily, and make sure and move the backup off the FMC. Unless you have a hardware FMC, you cannot have HA.
      if you lose your vFMC, then you need to build a brand new one with the same code, snort version, and VBD, and then bring the devices is.
      The FTD’s do not lose their configuration and would bring in their IPs. It will take you an hour to do it all, but not two days!! :)
      I cover this is my classes and videos
      thank you!
