Disable IoT Service as workaround of PAN-216043

L1 Bithead

We are having a problem in our PA cluster. One of the firewalls is restarted and HA is activated. This problem occurs approximately every 3 weeks and the error I found is from Wifclient and according to the paloalto documentation the workaround is to disable the IoT services.




Does anyone know how to disable IoT services ?

What version of PAN-OS are you running? This was addressed in 10.1.12, 10.2.5, and 11.0.2 already, so upgrading is your best course of action. Otherwise you'll need to contact TAC, I don't believe that you can just stop the wifclient from starting since it's a system process. 

Thank you for your response.

We are in 10.1.10-h2.


10.1.12 is New Release. Do you know if it is solved in 10.1.11-h5 witch is Preferred Release?
