Configure a Managed Palo Alto device when panorama server is unreachable

L1 Bithead


I am planning to deploy Panorama server to manage 4 FW on main site and DR site with Panorama server installed on the main site in panorama mode.


I wanted to know if we can access and configure the FWs in the event of a communication failure or virtualisation environment failure or maintenance.


It is not clear in the documentation. 

Can anyone help on this clarification  as it is important to access the Firewall locally in case of issue on the server ?

Thanks for your help.

You can still access all of the firewalls locally and create local policy if required. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that local changes are local, so if it's a change you want to apply across Panorama you would need to go back and clean it up once things are back online.
