An intriguing feature of PAN OS 8.0.9 is the ability to commit your own changes as opposed to all candidate config. This would be great because it's often that two or more engineers will have changes that overlap pending the approval chain. But if I click on Commit Changes Made By (my user ID) - and then try to Preview Changes, I get an error like:
Because the preview doesn't work for the individual user, I haven't pressed ahead to actually commit my changes. Is it the case that Commit works but not the Preview Changes? Or is the whole thing just not ready for prime time? Or could I be misunderstanding the purpose and value of the Commit Changes Made By: widget?
From what I have seen. This happens when two or more administrators make changes to and they have not been committed to the same branch of the XML configuration.
For example, the same Device group in Panorama is being changed by two admins simultaneously and the changes are not committed.
You will have to either commit all changes or have one admin back out of their changes, let the other admin make and commit changes, and then the first admin who backed out of their changes can proceed with theirs.
Hope that helps.
