In Panorama 5.0.x, a template commit to a managed device, which does not have multi-vsys enabled, fails due to a template mismatch error.
From the CLI, ms logs shows the error. Here is an example:
tail follow yes mp-log ms.log
Jan 09 22:15:20 Template lab mismatch: multi-vsys 1, Device: 0006C106255, multi-vsys 0
On the GUI, a template incompatible error appears in the Template Commit Status list. The Last Push State Details dialog shows the error in further detail.
This error is caused by the device not having Multi-Vsys option enabled, but the template has Virtual Systems selected.
Note: The Virtual Systems option is checked by default when an upgrade to PAN-OS 5.0.x is performed
To resolve this error, make sure the Virtual Systems option is unchecked if the managed device has no multi-vys capability.
The option is located under Panorama > Templates in Panorama.
Commit the changes to Panorama.
