7.0 deployed on two fw's so far and all is well

In the event anyone is curious- I've upgraded two PA-200's from 6.0.3 up to 7.0 (in a remote site and my science project at home). I am leaving the larger production FW's out of the mix for now until a couple of minor updates come along just to make sure :smileyhappy:

I upgraded to 6.1.0, then 6.1.4 and finally to 7.0.0 on both 200's without issues. One is configured L3 trust and untrust, the other is L2 and L3 trust and L3 untrust.

So far:

No issues bringing my "legacy" policies over.

One of the two has a VPN tunnel back to corp and it came up and appears to be working reliably (that one also has dns proxy, DHCP and a few other things setup on it).

Throughput improved by >10% - particularly download speed (benchmarked with speedtest.net). Yes, I know- there are lies, darn lies and benchmarks...

Overall I like the new ACC look.

Not much to do with intrazone on these devices; that will sure come in handy on the bigger PA's I run at corp and colo sites when I upgrade them.

HI edub,

I have also done in my PA-3020 and really PAN OS look like awsome. :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy:

Have you got any further updates since you have been running PAN-OS 7.0.0 for a while now?

I am looking to upgrade a customer's devices to PAN-OS 7.0.0, and good feedback would be reassuring!

Hey Jeremy,

My PA-200 has been getting dynamic updates fine after the upgrade to 7.0.0. No issues here in that department, just the pesky LDAP service route bug!

Sorry, I wasn't referring to dynamic updates!

Just if you have any positive or negative feedback!

Poor choice of wording perhaps!

RADIUS authentication with Challenge/Response seems to be broken. Besides that, I'm seeing good results with 7.0 as well.

:Loving it so far, haven't tested all the new features but I do like the LLDP addition and forcing all traffic down the GP VPN. But I have had a few kinks with it, nothing serious though.
