Error on Commit from Panorama After Migrating Firewalls from BrightCloud to PAN-DB

Printer Friendly Page


If managed Palo Alto Networks firewalls are migrated from BrightCloud to PAN-DB but Panorama still has BrightCloud, an error may occur when trying to commit from Panorama to the firewalls. The commit error that may appear is:

template > Shared Template > config > devices > localhost.localdomain > deviceconfig > system > update-schedule > url-database Not available for PAN-DB.


  1. Disable the shared policies/object and templates settings on the managed devices
    1. Go to Device > Setup > Management tab
    2. Edit Panorama Settings and click 'Disable Panorama Policy and Objects' and 'Disable Device and Network Template'

    3. Do a local commit on the manage devices
  2. Change the URL-Filtering database on Panorama and managed devices by running the following command (on Panorama and the devices):
    > set system setting url-database (data base name)
  3. On Panorama, run the following commands:
    > configure
    # delete template <template name> config deviceconfig system update-schedule url-database
    # commit
  4. Enable the shared policies/object and templates on the managed devices and commit
  5. Push the template from Panorama to the managed devices.

It would be nice if someone stitched together this document with Using Panorama to Manage Devices with PAN-DB and Devices Not Licensed for URL Filtering

when device is running 6.0 version, The bright-cloud categories pushed by Panorama will be translated dynamically into PAN-DB categories on the device.

had this on 7.x device, for some reason it freaked out
