How to downgrade HA pair from 7.1.X to 7.0.X version.

Hi Guys,

 

What is going to be a right way/steps to downgrade PA from the version mentioned above?

 

1) Disable "preemption" on the both nodes. Commit changes.

2) On the "passive" node load config that matches your version. Let say l am going to install 7.0.1. So config has to be compatible with this version. Install and reboot.

3) Passive back online. Active will try to sync config to passive where PAN-OS is different and also configuration is not compatible.

Can I prevent this synchronisation somehow  so l can then suspend Active and do the same steps as before to passive to match PAN-OS and config version. 

 

All feedbacks are welcome

 

Thanks
