Unable to generate XML, set, API, migration files. Progress bar freezes.

L2 Linker

Anyone else experiencing an issue after exporting, merging and making final corrections to Base Config Output with Generating XML config files?  Progress bar freezes at Generating Profiles.  All other projects show "initializing" in the progress bar.  Thought it might relate to release note MT-1573. If so, is there an ETA on an update with the fix?

it may be a different issue, because the release notes state the issues that we corrected into that release.

Did you make sure that the Task Agent is running in your Expedition?


To analyse further, we may need to more specific information, that could be related in how some objects have been declared in the configurations.

So, it would be good that you contact us via fwmigrate at paloaltonetworks dot com.

thanks for the quick response, My slow reply is due to PTO/holiday.  I've since upgraded to 1.1.50 and added resources but experiencing the same issue.  I'll reach out directly after I finish the Expedition course in LMS and look over object declarations.

I tried to resolve myself but I can not figure it out.  Would you have time today to take a look?

Follow up communication regarding subj with dgildelaig (L4 Transporter)


I was going to finish the LMS course for now, getting this msg –

"403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.  You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied." 

My partnerNextWave access is good so I think it is something with LMS.


Requesting further analysis on more specific information relating to how some objects have been declared in the configurations.  Let me know the information needed and how to pull it out of Expedition/Ubuntu-Linux and I will provide it. 


I'm not a Linux guru so specific instructions will not insult my intelligence. 😝
