Anyone use 6.1.2? Is it stable

L2 Linker

I'm pretty interesting in upgrading to this version (on 6.0.8 at the moment). Specifically for the Wildfire email link analysis.

Anyone upgraded? Is it working fine or have you run into any bugs?

6.1.2 is recommended release. It has one issue related to Ipsec, it doesnt mean it will affect your firewall.

We had a problem on Panorama M-100 with the log messages received from the firewall.

Panorama discarded all the log messages so we had to roll-back to version 6.0.8.

I am having a problem with IPSec (Satellite Device) as already reported. Downgrading to 6.1 resolved the IPSec problem.

Me too.  Detailed here 6.1.2 LSVPN/VPN Hang - Reboot Required

What's the official response???  I'll open a support case too

I'm using 6.1.2 on my PA-200.

Currently, all traffics are traversing FW.

One thing I'm concerning is that mp has some kind of memory leak.

I can't generate TSF.(it will be empty tgz file)

As you see below, my swap memory is 0k free.

Hi Hardik,

Could you please share the information about the issue with IPSec in 6.1.2?

Hello faust,

No specific issues have been identified so far with IPSec. It's a good  stable OS.



I can confirm same problem as EMR.

Additionally I have much biger problem with memory leak and accidental reboot of my PA200.

It's finally recognised by support as a bug id is 71828 will be fixed in 6.1.4 release.

I'd recommend You to wait until 6.1.4 will be released.

6.1.2 is no longer recommended per TAC.  Still having layer 3 lockup issues with 6.1.3 though, so stability is not there yet.  My Netscreens fwiw would almost never lockup.  I had some units up for 2-3 years without a boot, old firmware/security update recommendations aside.  Granted they didn't do as much as the PANs but I also didn't get woken up in the middle of the night every other night and get yelled at
