Hello,

The license info will be wiped from the device after the reset. However once its back online, have it reach out to the internet and grab licensing.

You can use the following day 0 config.

Hi @Ladynet ,

 

The LIVEcommunity Feedback area is used for LIVEcommunity questions only.

 

In order to get better traction for this I've moved your question to the general discussions area.

 

PAN-OS 8.1 will be supported on, PA-500 Series until the hardware end-of-life date (October 31, 2023).  I'm guessing the same applies to your licenses (if they don't expire before that of course) ... please check with TAC first for a confirmation.

 

Cheers,

-Kiwi.

We need license to do the update?

you actually don't need a license to do an upgrade, but a non-licensed device will not be able to download software versions from the update server, so you will need to do that part manually
