Upgrade path to PAN-OS 8.1 from 8.0.4

Which is the latest maintenance release from 8.0.4 to 8.1? I can see on my firewall that 8.0.19-h1 and 8.0.20 are available.

 

Thank you,

Hello,

From 8.0.4 you could go straight to 8.1 . However I would suggest going to the preferred engineering release:

Hello,

This article should help you out. Basically install 8.1 then to the minor release of 8.1.x you want to go to.

If you want to go to 9.0.4/5 here is an article for that. I've been running it without any issues for months.

We did it the other week.

8.0.9 to 8.0.20

8.0.20 to 8.1

8.1 to 8.1.11


This was on a HA 3020, took us about 1h:30m but we were being very cautions, unfortunately it did cause interruption on one of our very time critical services.

 

But overall it went without issue. we probably could have done it in 45mins if we just bashed on..

Thanks for your reply.

 

So on my scenario we would upgrade it like this.

 

8.0.4 to 8.0.20

8.0.20 to 8.1

 

The model of my firewall is a PA-820. For now, I just want to get our firewall to 8.1.

Hi,

 

Thank you for your solution. I did read on the previous documentation you sent me about upgrading straight to 8.1. I will try that.

 

Thanks guys,
