Good Day

If I understand your question correctly, you are concerned that if/when you change interfaces (to consolidate them) that this will break connectivity and perhaps get a failure.  Allow me to explain that the Panorama will push the updated template information to the FW.  You could ensure that the auto commit recovery parameters are changed, to allow for the push to be completed.


Let me give example. I did a project where a remote FW was only accessible via a site to site VPN.  When we needed to change the key, it would disconnect the FW, break the VPN, and then the FW would auto commit recover.


I have unchecked this box before, disconnected my FW from Panorma due to the change and then established my VPN, and then activated the Enable automated commit recovery button.



I think this is what you need to do for your config as well.

Thanks for the clarification, which mean while Panorama pushing config down to Palo Alto it like normal commit process that the Palo Alto still continue commit new configuration, just that I require to disable the auto commit recovery to avoid Palo Alto rollback to old configuration when it lost connection with Panorama.
