Any idea if PAN OS 5.0.2 has a bug that could reboot the firewall on its own? This has happened yesterday, when the PA-500 self rebooted (obviously lost access to everything for a good 25 mins). First thing I did was:
1. Looked at the system logs for that specific period and there was nothing evident of why the firewall rebooted. I could only see a good gap of 15 mins with no logs; after which logging was regarding the interfaces coming up etc.
2. From the cli I used less mp-log ms.log - to find some interesting stuff (snapshot attached). At 10:36 am when the firewall went down to 10:45 am; nothing has been logged apart from the special character. I could not find any relevant information from any other logs.
3. I then generated the tech support file to figure out if the crashinfo had any information, but nothing was to be found.
Any ideas? Any other ways I can find why the firewall has rebooted on its own?
I know there can be many more reasons. But a quick insight what else can I look into will be very helpful. Apart from this, are there any known issues with version 5.0.2. regarding rebooting?
True 5.0.2 has kind of been buggy; specially with the CPU issues. But again, 5.0.1 has its own equal share in having issues. I am eagerly waiting for 5.0.3 to be released! Nevertheless, as Rkalugdan states, I will open up a case with PAN support in a bit for further forensics.
