Device Disconnected from Panorama

I added the Device yesterday to Panorama and everything was fine. Logs were shipping to Panorama from device as expected and at about 9:50 PM, I see a stop in the logs so I assume the device became disconnected at that point. From the device I can ping the Panorama so connectivity is there. No changes were made last night. 


What else can I check?

Hi @s.williams1,


There are a couple of checks you could perform.


I'd start by verifying that the device & panorama have connectivity, i.e.:


On Device

admin@PA-4050> show panorama-status

Panorama Server 1 :

State : Unknown


Verify logrcvr status on the device:

admin@PA-4050> show system software status | match logrcvr

Process  logrcvr              running  (pid: 1606)

Restart may be required if not running. 


On the device verify logs are being actively written to the appliance, forwarding, etc..:

admin@PA-4050> debug log-receiver statistics

On Panorama (verify if devices are connected):

admin@Panorama> show devices connected

Serial               Hostname        IP              Connected


0001A100236          PA-4050     yes


Verify logging status on Panorama (last log forwarded from device, etc...):

admin@Panorama> show logging-status device <device_serial_number>

      Type              Last Log rcvd      Last SeqNo. rcvd       Last Log generated

    config        2017/04/03 18:02:01                   145      2017/01/19 16:12:17

    system        2017/03/30 11:18:01                 15835      2017/01/19 16:13:49





If there is a gap in logging (logs not forwarding to Panorama) & connectivity to/from devices does not appear to be an issue, etc…, you could issue the following commands in sequence on Panorama via CLI to restart the log-forwarding process :


  1. request log-fwd-ctrl device <serial number> action stop
  2. request log-fwd-ctrl device <serial number> action live (let this run for about 1 minute or so & verify logging-status)
    Note:Think of "action live" as a function similar to UDP syslog/best-effort. In this mode, there will be no sanity checks/lost log checks, etc... Logging is literally "live" with no buffering.
  3. Finally, issue the following command: request log-fwd-ctrl device <serial number> action start
    Note: Action Start (default behavior) is buffered log forwarding. Reasoning behind the buffering is for Panorama to perform various checks (lost log checks, etc...), from last acked, etc...


Afterwards, issue the following command from CLI on Panorama as well as verify via the WebUI/Monitor tab:

admin@Panorama> show logging-status device <device_serial_number>

      Type            Last Log rcvd    Last SeqNo. rcvd       Last Log generated

    config      2017/04/19 20:02:01                 235      2017/04/19 20:00:17

    system      2017/04/19 12:18:01               19935      2017/04/19 12:08:49





Hope this helps,

All checks out. The device shows disconnected so it doesnt show ip in many outputs. The logs are running good ont he local device just not connected to Panorama so therefore not forwarding. 


From device I can ping Panorama, and Panorama I can ping device, no firewalls are in between. 


Silly question, but can a device that is currently not on support be managed in the Panorama?


The only thing I see in the logs is the Panorama going out to and doing some kind of deployment job update license task?
