Pan-OS 8.0 and PA-200

L2 Linker

Has anyone upgraded a PA-200 to PAN-OS 8.0? If so have you seen a performance hit at all? Notice a difference in how long things take? Commits? Response time? How long did the upgrade take? Did it take the 50-60 minutes Palo says? If so is that sitting right next to you or on the local LAN? Or was it over WAN connection? Just looking for info at the moment.


come on anyone!!!


FYI: The file for PAN-OS 8 won't be enough for your PA-200 on 5.0.12/5.1.2. You also need (5.1), 6.0, 6.1, 7.0 and 7.1.


But as @BPry already wrote this forum is not the right place to ask others to violate the terms of service on their support contracts

@PaloWhato If you renew the support contract on your PA-200 you'll be able to legally download all the PAN-OS versions plus all the latest content updates. Please reach out to your local sales representative, they may be able to give you a good deal on a lab bundle including threat protection and URL filtering


Please refrain from asking fellow members to breach their terms of use

I have upgraded a few PA-200(Test Lab only) it takes around 10 minutes and 6-8(Firewall being offline) minutes after rebooting to apply new version.
