Hi @AhamadullahM ,


First try again after doing a commit force to the device first.

I've seen several occurences where this fixed it for the users.


If it still fails -

What hardware and PAN-OS are you running ?

Confirm you're running on a preferred OS release so you're not running into possible bugs from older OS versions.

I've seen several cases where root access was required from TAC to fix the issue as well (PA-440 mostly it seems).


This type of error can have several root causes to be able to pinpoint the issue exactly with the information currently provided.

I am having the same problem 

you must open a suppot ticket. The re-generate de local certificate and fix some problem of the AP using root access. Then you can generate OTP again and fetch the certificate.
