The email profile is setup by you, the customer.  Your O365 guy will tell you the IP or FQDN credentials to put in, or, you can put in your own. If you are not sure what the SMTP is supposed to be contact your 00365 guy.


If you go to Monitor tab, then go Email Scheduler (3rd item from the bottom, on left hand side) you can schedule reports to be sent out to your email profile.


The FW keeps a copy of the running config and a version number on the HDD of the FW.  So it is automatically backing it up on the HDD.  If you mean to offload the config, then you would need develop or find a script/API that would ssh in, scp the runningconfig.xml and then exit.  That is NOT done/capable on the FW, without purchasing a Panorama (mgmt application for the FWs)

Just to expand on question #3:

There's a number of ways to backup the firewalls configuration. Panorama is obviously an answer, you can use the XML API to easily export the configuration through a script, or use something like pan-os-python in a script to login to the file and do a SCP export of the configuration.

Scripting this process directly through the API is very simple, and doing operational commands through pan-os-python are also extremely simple. So really the method that you pick is simply up to you.


pan-os-python SCP Example:

from panos import firewall
fw = firewall.Firewall('', 'admin', 'mypassword')
gather_config = fw.op('scp export configuration from running-config.xml to <username@host:path>')

 The API call to export the configuration is just /api/?type=export&category=configuration which will simply output the running-configuration.xml as the response.
