VMX clients connecting.

VMX clients connecting.

I currently have the Vmx behind a palo alto firewall in Azure.   I'm able to see the Vmx being utilized as a hub in the Meraki dashboard.  

 

My issue is servers and other vm's i spin in Azure will only show up as a client in the dashboard if I have the udr for those servers/vm's pointing towards the vmx.  Our current environment we have all devices pointing towards the palo alto interface.  The servers/vm's don't show up on the dashboard as clients  and cant communicate with remove mx's whenever I point the udr towards the palo.

 

In short does anyone know if the Azure servers and vm's have to have a udr pointed towards the vmx for them to be considered a client?

Kind of a big deal

What is a udr?

@PhilipDAth : I think he is talking about User-Defined Routes (UDR)

Are we talking about plain and ordinary Azure route tables?

@robfromsc : 

In Azure network i think your vMX has its own IP address and you'll need to route packets from the Palo alto towards the IP of the vMX. I would recommend to use static or BGP peering with Palo Alto for exchange routes.
