Changing an appliance management IP on a Panorama managed appliance

L0 Member



I have to reconfigure management IPs on PAN-OS 8.1.x firewalls, which is managed also by a Panorama 8.1.x server. My thinking re process is as follows:


Add new policy to allow Panorama to new Mgt IP on applicable firewalls and vice versa.

Reconfigure management IPs on firewalls (locally)

Reconfigure Panorama device groups etc with new management IPs of firewalls.


Are there any gotchas or steps I should ensure as the firewalls are out in Australia and the Panorama server is in the UK so want to make this as smooth as possible?


Many thanks in advance.

If you change the management address on a PA, it will update Panorama with the new info automatically. I had to do this recently and it took a couple of minutes for the new addresses to appear in Panorama.
