FQDN Table in CLI


does anybody knows what is the meaning of CLI output for > request system fqdn show, that states for fqdn object ...Not used

Some fqdn objects that i've configured, PAN has resolved, but for some there is output Not used. I'm sure that those fqdn's are in use. For example when i use nslookup those get resolved.

FQDN object would show "Not Used" when its not defined in the Security-rule.

You can always manually refresh the FQDN table using cli command

> request system fqdn refresh

A  Job  FqdnRefresh  is triggered everytime commit is executed.

To verify if an object is being used in an active security policy execute :

>show running security-policy | match <Resolved IP of the FQDN>
