Migrating from PA 500 to PA 820

Hi team

Can we directly take backup of PA 500 running PA OS 8.1 to PA 820 running PAN OS 9.0.

 

Thanks in advance.

@shubhamG,

You'll be able to load the old configuration and just validate the configuration to check for any errors; on a PA-500 to PA-820 migration I wouldn't expect to see anything major. The biggest thing that you have to look out for is interfaces since the PA-820 only has 4 copper ports and 8 SFP. You'll want to make sure that you take that into account for your migration planning.

Hi @BPry 

 

Thanks for your quick response.

Just wanted to say would there wont be any impact while importing backup from PAN OS 8.1. to PAN OS 9.0..as we know lots of stuff has changed in PAN OS 9.0.

 

Also if a PA came with factory default with PAN OS 9.0..can we downgrade it to PAN OS 8.1 smoothly?

 

 

Thanks again
