Panorama - Webinterface not Working

Hi guys,

we noticed that the web interface of our panorama VM is "broken". I am able to reach the https://<panorama> site and I am also able to log in but the next page is not displayed. Only a white site will be displayed.

ssh login is possible.

I already reverted to old configs, old and new version (6.0.5 was installed, tried 6.0.0,  6.0.6 and 6.1) without success. d

Any Ideas?

Thanks

Stephan

Hello Stephan,

There could be a number of reasons to explain that behavior (not enough disk space, high virtual memory utilization, software bug, hardware issue...)

I would strongly recommend you to open a ticket with support and attach a tech support file.

Regards,

Guillermo.

Re: Panorama - Webinterface not Working

I had some issues after a Java upgrade on my pc a while back but not quite the same.  Have you tried the basics?  Check from different browser, and restart management plane?

Hello,

If you can login to panorama using SSH, then please share output of below command to confirm if the issue is related to not having enough space left on either of the disk

> show system disk-space

Hello,

Try using a different browser. I have seen some weird stuff and this usually fixes it for me.

Re: Panorama - Webinterface not Working

I agree with oklier, sounds like a browser issue.  Start with switching browsers and versions.  I've found that both chrome and firefox are getting more and more aggressive on "security" settings that are messing with my mgmt access to various network devices.  This is especially true for Java which both browsers seem out to kill.

I've actually found that compatibility mode with MS Internet Explorer seems to be the safest bet for these types of interfaces.

Re: Panorama - Webinterface not Working

Thanks for the answers.

Disks space is maybe the reason for...tempfs is full...mhmm...

Filesystem       Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3        3.8G  1.6G  2.0G  45% /
/dev/sda5         23G  4.7G   17G  22% /opt/pancfg
/dev/sda6        3.8G  1.5G  2.2G  41% /opt/panrepo
tmpfs            2.0G 0  2.0G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda8        350G  124G  227G  36% /opt/panlogs

10.133.7.37:/vol/sn_panorama_logs_nfs/qt_sn_panorama_logs_nfs

350G  124G  227G  36% /mnt/dynamic-logs

I already tried it with different browsers (Firefox, Safari, IE) and old java versions without success. Webinterfaces of the Firewalls are working fine.++

hardware issue

-> No because it's a virtual Machine and I already tried it on different hosts.

software bug

-> I don't think so because I already tried different versions of panorama (installation via cli is possible)

restart management plane

-> I restarted everything :smileygrin: the host, the software etc.

Thanks

Hi Stephan,

I would still recommend to open a ticket with support for this.

If, for whatever reason, you don't want to open a ticket with TAC, then try a factory reset:

First backup Panorama:

How to Backup Panorama

Second Factory Reset

How to Factory Reset a Palo Alto Networks Device

Follow instructions in the first document to import config/logs into Panorama

Regards,

Guillermo.

Re: Panorama - Webinterface not Working

Hi,

okay I did the factory default reset and everything is working now but I made a screenshot of the VM before - maybe I will analyze this issue within the next weeks (or create a support ticket) because I hate issues which ware solved via a reboot/reset etc. If I got anything new I will update this conversation.

Thanks for your help!

Cheers

Stephan

----- Commands I used ----

# scp export configuration from running-config.xml user@IP:path/conf.xml

# debug system maintenance-mode

Login via Console and perform Factory Default Reset

# set deviceconfig system ip-address x.x.x.x netmask x.x.x.x default-gateway x.x.x.x

# scp import configuration from user@IP:path/conf.xml

# load config from conf.xml

# commit
