Palo Alto Configuration Change

L0 Member



Long time lurker here.

I need some directions with a project I am preparing.

The project adapts the way we communicate with the internet. This means preparing PBF rules, NAT rules, quite some objects(100+) and groups (10+) and also adapting the way the security rules interact with the zones. All this is quite some configuration change and I was wondering what tool would be best to prepare this offline. Ideally i would like to create a new config (based on the existing) that I can simply upload so that I can test it whenever I want and rollback easily for later changes/retesting/evaluation. I was thinking about using maybe Expedition for this or so. Upload existing, make changes there and export new config.What do you guys think would be best?

PS: This is a Palo Alto 5220 Cluster with 800+ rules and a few thousand objects.

Agreed that Expedition is best.  However, based on the complexity, you may want to contact your reseller to get a few (8 or 16) Pro Service hours, so that you have some expertise to work on.  Trying to tshoot here at the Live Community is probably not realistic. 

Good Luck.

Expedition would be the way to go with this unless you are already used to modifying the XML directly. Professional services could be useful, but I think building this out manually would be easy enough.
