Thanks for your replay, unfortunatly, No, I dont see any indications, its stays black. the only indications I see is phisically the green lights and the FAN. I cant really go to any mode nor do anything
is there is aways to access it via the mgmt port ? whats the defualt IP ? is it CLI or GUI via mgmt?
Thanks, I guess we are progressing now, I connected the mgmt port to my laptop, both (laptop & PA) ports showing up (green light).
I assigned 192.168.1.10 to my laptop and disabled all other NIC's, tried to access the PA GUI via 192.168.1.1 but no luck its not even ping-able. not sure how to do the scan though ?
Make sure the firewall is not in FIPS/CC mode. Those modes disable the console connection entirely. CLI itself should work just fine (SSH to the management IP).
You can check the differences to see if that applies to your firewall:
