PA-220 disk space issues

L0 Member

As most with a PA-220 have experienced, regardless version running (currently latest 10.2.3-h2) root partition fills up all the time and have to run the disk-usage cleanup commands manually and tried enabling aggressive-cleaning as well, it just continuously hits level/ But it just fills up all the effin time:-)


With the root disk issues seemingly persistent (since at least the high 9 versions) and with the PA-220 only containing a measly 32GB, apart from the disk issues we are perfectly happy with the PA-220 and have a handful across our network, so does anyone know if there is a storage upgrade option? just want to be able to have a bigger eMMC storage in it if possible, either by buying and installing or any Palo support routes that would enable a swap of storage?


Any ideas?






we are already at 10.2.8. So you are saying do a reset and then restore snapshot backup will solve the disk space capacity issue?

Yes, in my experience, saving and exporting the named snapshot, performing the factory reset and restoring the current snapshot, relieved the storage issues caused by the faulty code in previous versions for the PA220.
