PA-220 Thermal Shutdown

L0 Member

Morning All,


Here in the UK, we are in the midst of a heatwave and we have had 2 PA-220's shutdown for heat issues.


I can't find anywhere at what temperature the Palo shutdown due to temps? I thought it was the MAX Chasis temp, however, we have another Palo that's passed the MAX of 60c and not shutdown.


Has anyone got any info or experience?

Hi @AdamRayner 

Do you have other PA-220 which passed 60°C or other paloalto firewalls?

When you enter the cli command "show system environmentals" you see the current values and also the min and max values for different environmental sensors. For example on a PA-220 here it looks like the following:
