HA malfunctioned due to data plane down

L1 Bithead


We have PA-3220 and its running 9.0.12. recently i saw that HA status is showing that "HA malfunctioned due to dataplane failed" and we cannot push any configuration on the firewall due to "dataplane failed" error message. 

Please suggest what can cause this error. I also see "the dataplane is starting" critical log message under system logs. 


Thank you

Can be due to software bug

I will recommend you to upgrade the PA to Version 9.1.11

As it is recommended one.
