Cannot view config difference in Panorama

L4 Transporter



When I do a 'show config diff' from CLI in Panorama, all I get is something like:

-    outfile /opt/pancfg/session/pan/user_tmp/6822880318474071/opresult.out.10687;

+    outfile /opt/pancfg/session/pan/user_tmp/6822880318474071/opresult.out.10688;


Using 9.0.7


No change was made and I can view the config difference from the firewall and also from the Panorama Webgui.


How do I fix this?

have you tried restarting the management-server (or panorama as a whole) ?


> debug software restart process management-server

Restarting the management plane did not work.

We have scheduled a window for the whole Panorama reboot.

PANCFG is not using that much space.

Any further troubleshooting steps you can provide please?

try restarting the config daemon:

> debug software restart process configd

If that doesn't work you'll want to see if debug logging on both configd and managemnt-server provide any type of clue as to what is going on. you'll want to get a tech support file and get TAC involved
