5.0.3 - ready for production?

L4 Transporter


I have PA200 with 4.1.10, and I'd like to use few new features from 5.0.x series, and I hope that my problems with QoS will gone

Is it in your opinion (taken from real life) 5.0.3 ready for production environment?

Last time  (user id issue) testing team didnt work well in PA, did you discovered or heard about any new issues in 5.0.3?

what I pay attention before the upgrade (I've never done transition from 3.x to 4.x),  Of course I will have the recovery procedure on a desk.

I did not see any problems with 5.0.3 but it is early and most bugs are related to environments.There will be no any panos without any bug but we are using 5.0.3 for production with some customers.

From the reactions in this community forum 5.0.3 seems (so far) to be far more stable than previous releases - however users might have been scared off by the bad things happening to 5.0.0, 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 so its now more of a waiting game for everybody involved.

But as long as you can do a fast rollback (that is make sure you have your licenses, panos-releases AND configurations backuped properly) and monitor the installation live (that is dont install 5.0.3 and go home for the day :smileysilly:) I think you should be fine with 5.0.3 (with a fat disclaimer that noone, so far, seems to have found any major issue with 5.0.3 😉

5.0.1h1 seems a perfectly stable release on the PA-200.

If you are anxious to get up on 5.0, I think 5.0.3 makes sense. You can always go back to 5.0.1h1 (on PA-200). Do realize that there is no roll back to 4.x (if you update your config at all, which presumably you will)


Thats good news, so I will prepare to upgrade to 5.0.3 and roll back to 5.0.1.h1

I tryed to download 5.0.3 image, after progress bar rised 100% I cant see "downloaded" status in Device > Software, so I tryed to download 5.0.0 but with the same resaults.

In system log I cant find any errors related to PAN software, what is going on?

I have 4.1.0, 4.1.6, 4.1.8, 4.1.10 downloaded to my device. Its occupied some space. How to verify how much free space is left ?



You'll first have to upgrade to the PANOS 5 base image - i.e. 5.0.0 first then 5.0.3. My experience so far with 5.0.2 and 5.0.3 is great. No issues seen thus far. The built-in agentless User-ID is a nice addition. Overall the performance is much better in terms of commit times, generating reports and searching the logs.

can you do a "show system disk-space"

try to delete old version files from webgui or cli ( delete software ....)

and download 5.0.0 see if shows downloaded or not

Before delete:

Filesystem        Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3         1.9G  1.3G  540M  71% /
/dev/sda5         6.6G  3.8G  2.5G  61% /opt/pancfg
/dev/sda6         1.9G  822M 1011M  45% /opt/panrepo
tmpfs             1.3G   37M  1.2G   3% /dev/shm
/dev/sda8         2.4G  1.9G  401M  83% /opt/panlogs

after I deleted 4.1.0:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail

/dev/sda3             1.9G  1.3G  540M

/dev/sda5             6.6G  3.8G  2.5G

/dev/sda6             1.9G  822M 1012M

tmpfs                 1.3G   37M  1.2G

/dev/sda8             2.4G  1.9G  401M

why I cant see differences?

now i downloaded 5.0.0 to my device without a problem.

after you deleted you downloaded without problem.So this makes issue resolved.

with that show disk command we cannot see that space maybe.Maybe there is a way for that but I do not know how.But deleting unused images make it clear.

also for panos 5 there is a new command
