1. Panorama  from legacy mode version 8.1.14-h2 to panorama mode 9.1.10 can push config to PA-5020/5050 version 7.1.12?

2. I created my VM panorama. it was going to pending loop:

Warning: This Panorama instance does not have a license key. Click 'OK' below to try retrieving the license from the Palo Alto Networks Update Server.

You have 0 days before commits will be disallowed. Please retrieve and install the license key as soon as possible.


But I have a license...


3. Which panorama version start mangament device with license? The license need the same S/N, and need IP the same now?

Hi @Jason_Tong thank you for posting question.


1. I never used exactly the same versions as you stated, but on numerous occasions I have pushed configuration from Panorama version 9.1 to managed Firewall running 7.1. In general, there is no issue, however I have hit a few minor issues, but those have not stopped me from using it. If there is any specific issue you are facing, could you elaborate more?

Please note that PAN-OS 7.1 is already EOL and you should move to 8.1 which is highest supported version for PA-5020/5050.


2.    Yes, Panorama has to be licensed to by fully functional. In the past, when I was working with Lab environment, I have reached my PAN contact to get short term temporary license to complete my verification.


3. Panorama has to be licensed regardless of the version. The license is bound to S/N and not IP address. The license itself is called Device Management License and has the number of managed Firewalls you can have.

For example if you are deploying M-600, then with license: PAN-M-600-P-1K you can manage up to 1000 firewalls.

For example if you are deploying VM version, then with license: PAN-PRA-1000 you can manage up to 1000 firewalls.


I believe that smallest license you can have is for 25 Firewalls. Please note that dedicated log collector has to be licensed as well.


I hope this answers your questions.


Kind Regards
