PANOS 8.0.4 warning ipv6 not enabled on tunnel interface

Hello All,

I just upgraded to 8.0.4 and now when I commit the tunnel interface associated with my external GP gateway gives a warning that "ipv6 is not enabled on the tunnel interface tunnel.1.  IPv6 address will be ignored!"

Did something change in the gateway configuration.  I've gone over and over a few times and am not finding a reference to IPv6 anywhere.  It's set to use IPv4 Only.  If I remove the tunnel interface from the gateway config or I enable IPv6 on the tunnel interface, the warning goes away.  Is there a setting I need to change or could this be an issue with 8.0.4?

PAN OS 8.0 added IPv6 support for Global Protect.

If you don't need IPv6 for Global Protect, just ignore the warning message.  It is perfectly safe.

Thanks for the reply.  Would there be a reason not to enable IPv6 on the tunnel interface?  If GP isn't using IPv6 for client IPs, I don't see how it could affect anything.

To confirm... I enabled v6 on all tunnels just to remove the warning. It made no difference to GP operation.

JFYI:

I did open a tech support case for this in december.

I got the infomation, this is a kown cosmetic bug.

There will be no fix in 8.0.x

There should be a solution in 8.1.

I can't confirm this with 8.1.0, but will wait for 8.1.1.

Not fixed in 9.0.x.

I tested on the PA 8.1.9 GP external Gateway I do not get any warning message.

Thanks @MP18 . To clarify my post, I still get the warnings on 8.1.9-h4 and 9.0.5 when the enable IPv6 on the interface is unchecked in the tunnel interface config. From what @fb-pan posted, this was going to be addressed in future code releases. I do not want to use the workaround.

Thanks for replying back.

Try 8.1.9 if you can as it works fine for me without enabling Tunnel Interface for IPv6.
