Generate XML Output hangs at "Generating Monitor" or "Initializing"

L1 Bithead



Trying to merge a Palo Alto 9.0.4 configuration into Panorama 9.0.4, I'm able to merge but when I click the "generate XML and Set Output" button it hangs at either "Generating Monitor" or "Initializing"


Panreadorders log looks like it just exits without an error message:

Checking: AbstractProcess

Running version


L5 Sessionator

Would it be fine to share the project with us prior to the merge, so we can check what may be freezing this process?

Sending via sharefile to the provided email address. Has the same subject line. Thanks for the help!

Did you guys find a solution for this? I'm getting the same error today. Tried restarting the service and then the whole Exp VM.

Hello @BrandonBogle 


perform a sudo apt-get update and update your expedition client to the latest version. If this doesn't fix your problem send an email at the address listed above. Most likely there is an issue with your client as we are not able to see the same problem.

I tried the update, but I’m already at the newest version 1.1.89 (without upgrading to 2)

Hello @BrandonBogle ,


The latest version of expedition is 1.1.109 likely the repos are not being updated so expedition is not updating.


To update repo please refer to this post as you may need to manually add the repo as a trusted source.

I was able to get the server update to 1.1.109 after following the link, but I’m still unable to generate my XML/SET files. It hangs at “Generating Profiles vsys/db:vsys2” It’s doing the same thing for multiple projects.
