Failed to sync PAN-DB to peer: Peer user failure

Hi, I have 2 PA500 (7.1.5 PAN-OS) In Active-Passive HA and since I upgrace from brighcloud to PAN-DB I have lots of mails complaining about "Failed to sync PAN-DB to peer: Peer user failure."

 

I see that not all atemts to update de passive device fail, but 3-4 a day fail for some reason. Since the update is successfully in most of the atempt it's not normal the "Peer user failer" error message.

 

It's some having the same problem?

Re: Failed to sync PAN-DB to peer: Peer user failure

There was a bug in the code that caused this sync failure for Pan DB on HA clusters.  I can't remember the versions or details. 

 

You might check the release notes for the versions above the one you are running to see if it  would be solved by an upgrade.

Re: Failed to sync PAN-DB to peer: Peer user failure

Hi, sorry for not indicating the version I'm using before.

I have the latest PAN-OS (7.1.5) and there is no mention of any PAN-DB sync issues in the release notes.

Notice the same message in the system logs for PAN-OS 7.1.6.

 

It seems this bug was fixed in 7.1.10
PAN-64639
PAN-72875

Hi, I don't remember exactly in what version (now in 8.0.4), but upgrading to PAN-OS 8.0.X fix my problem a while ago.
