Old 4020 box running 5.x code.

L1 Bithead

Team,

We have a old 4020 box running the Palo Alto 5.x code. We are looking to upgrade this to 10.x and wanted to know the best path recommended for this upgrade.

 

Thanks!

Hi @tech_geek2023 ,

 

You can't run 10.x on a PA-4020.  The latest PAN-OS version you can run on a PA-4020 is v7.1:

I'm not sure if you can still find the necessary PAN-OS versions to upgrade to 7.1 ... but the upgrade path from 5.0.x would be 5.1 (Panorama only) > 6.0 > 6.1 > 7.0 > 7.1 . 

 

For each upgrade to a new major version you should download the base version first and then download/install the latest version before moving forward with the next one.  As explained here for 10.1:

I'm not sure if you can still find versions prior to 7.1 on the support portal ... you might have to reach out to TAC.

 

Kind regards,

-Kim.
