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.

With reagrds



When a device attempts to pull an update (or do a dynamic URL lookup) from BrightCloud, the device connects directly to BrightCloud's servers for this information, not the Palo Alto Networks update server.

Do you guys have any updates on why 5.0 was affected but 4.1 wasn't? It's really curious why the update affected one version and not another.

You'll first have to upgrade to the PANOS 5 base image - i.e. 5.0.0 first then 5.0.3.

Not true. You just need to download the 5.0 image and the donwload and install 5.0.3.

And speaking of which - those of you who use PA's own URL-DB (instead of Brightcloud), any problems for you yet with broken updates or such?

No Problems so far with 5.0.3 and PANDB.

Not applicable

I've upgraded to 5.0.3 and seem to be having issues with web filtering. I was on version 5.0.1 prior and everything worked fine. Now all of the url categories that are set to blocked aren't working.

Just FYI I believe the 'upgrade first to 5.0' rule applies when you're jumping more than one version...  I think to go from 4.0 to 5.0 you first need to upgrade from 4.0 -> 4.1 then on to 5.0
