Hi Ram


It looks like the device is having trouble downloading the DB on both URL filtering, you may need to troubleshoot connectivity from your management interface towards the internet first before you'll be able to switch databases.


You'll want to verify if DNS is being resolved

> ping host
> ping host

Don't worry if you don't get ping replies, these services don't respond to ping, but it's an easy way to check if your firewall is able to resolve DNS for these hosts. If the IP is not resolcved, please verify your DNS settings.


Next you can try a manual download

> request url-filtering upgrade brightcloud
> request url-filtering download status vendor brightcloud

If this is still failing you may need to verify your traffic logs to see if the download is being blocked by a security policy


Once the DB is downloaded you should be able to active the url filtering





hope this helps

Hi Tom,

            Thanks for the reply.

I did a packet caputre on the firewall I found that CA of next hop is not trusted by palo alto.

In my scenario palo alto is behind the proxy server, during the connection palo alto doesnt trust the proxy.




And in the certificate trust list, import option is unavaiable.






kindly give some suggestions.



with regards,


Hi Ram


you could try setting a service route for updates or bypassing the proxy entirely for management plane connections, the proxy may not be forwarding the crl/ocsp properly
