LAB PA-200 fails 7.0.1 upgrade

L1 Bithead

I have a Lab PA-200 that I have been upgrading to the latest version of PAN OS for testing.

I have been uploading the OS file and upgrading for a while.

The 7.0 file worked fine. After the alert about 7.0. I attempted to upgrade to 7.0.1.

No joy. In Firefox and Chrome the upload dialog just sits there forever.

With IE 11 it finally gives the error: "upload file size exceeded system limit"

There is a critical error in the system log following this:

'Disk usage for / exceeds limit, 100 percent in use, cleaning filesystem'

I do not see this error following the stalled uploads with Firefox or Chrome

Is there a work around for this, or am I at a dead end?

Hi Markwoll,

You are not alone, I also have this issue. I would advise opening up a support case.



Please check show output of the command

admin@lab-fw73> show system disk-space

no disk partition should be 100% or near to

L5 Sessionator

If the disk space is 100% for the first partition we need to take the root access and delete files. If some other partition are near to 100% you can delete some dynamic update, old PAN-OS

delete software version ?

delete anti-virus update ?

delete url-database ?

Hi Pakumar,

my sda2 partition is 99% full. The management plane has crashed twice in two days now and last night it became completely unresponsive but its ok after a reboot. I've deleted everything I can.


Could you share the output of that command.

Doing a factory reset might help. The command to do a factory reset is

"request system private-data-reset"

Rate the helpful answer.

Hi Pakumar,


admin@MN-PA-200> show system disk-space

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sda2             1.9G  1.8G   30M  99% /

/dev/sda5             6.6G  3.1G  3.2G  50% /opt/pancfg

/dev/sda6             1.9G  1.2G  618M  67% /opt/panrepo

tmpfs                 1.3G  116M  1.2G  10% /dev/shm

/dev/sda8             2.4G  1.1G  1.2G  49% /opt/panlogs

I'll reset the box when I next have physical access.



Hi Ben,

We need to take the root access and deleted some files. To take root access you have to open a case with support.

Is this going to be an issue for all PA-200s?

I've looked at some 200s I have any it appears I'm going to run into the same issue with disk space.

Could you please let know the PAN-OS version on the PA 200. Not every firewall will cause the issues. Have management profile is turned on the Outside interface?
