Global Protect 8.1 - Building Clientless VPN but stuck on DNS-Proxy Setup

L1 Bithead

I am starting to build a clientless vpn setup, but I am getting errors when building a DNS Proxy and DNS Server Profile. 

I get this error msg. I tried ethernet, tunnels and loopback interfaces and they all failed. I tried following the instructions but i get the same error message. Does it matter if use the a loopback or tunnel interface? all of them are set for "layer 3". not sure why its calling it "invalid". 



Validation Error:

dns-proxy -> DNS-Proxy -> interface 'loopback.998' is not a valid reference

dns-proxy -> DNS-Proxy -> interface is invalid

No DNS default obj found

(Module: dnsproxyd)

Commit Failed.

btw..I get the error as I commit to Template from Panorama. 


So from the message that the validation is giving you it would appear that you are attempting to use a loopback interface that doesn't exist. Are you sure that the template actually includes the 'loopback.998' interface that you are trying to use here? 

Yes. I am sure because I ran into similar issues like it and fixed it. But this time with DNS Proxy nothing seems to work regardless which interface I use. I suspect that there is a sync problem between Panorama and the firewall device because I created a tunnel and loopback interface within Panorama but only partial configs was pushed to the firewall device. I am not sure how or where I can go to find what items are synced between Panorama and the firewall.
