Hi @CERMAV-SI ,

Small clarification - this is not an error message, but rather critical notification. Those notifications are distributed from Palo Alto update cloud when important information needs to be share with end-customers.

 

It looks like you are trying to access the page from account that is not associated with any support portal accounts. Try to open the link with account that exist in your support portal.

 

 

Below I will share that I believe is most important:

 

 

On December 31, 2023, the root certificate and default certificate for Palo Alto Networks firewalls and appliances running PAN-OS software will expire. If you do not renew your certificates before they expire, your firewalls and Panorama appliances will no longer establish new connections to Palo Alto Networks cloud services, which will impact network traffic and potentially cause a network outage when existing connections terminate and attempt to reconnect due to network changes, configuration changes, or unforeseen events.

 

Target Upgrade Versions

The table below contains the target upgrade versions for both scenario 1a and scenario 2b.

 

Current PAN-OS Version

Upgrade Target Version

9.1

9.1.11-h4

9.1.12-h6

9.1.13-h4

9.1.14-h7

9.1.16-h3 

9.1.17 or greater

 

Scenario 1

If you are a customer with Data redistribution (User-ID, IP-tag, User-tag, GlobalProtect HIP, and/or quarantine list) you will need to take one of the following two actions: (1a) upgrade your affected firewalls, and Panorama (Management and Log Collector modes), OR (1b) deploy Custom Certificates to your affected firewalls, and Panorama (Management and Log Collector modes).


Scenario 2

If you are a customer with WildFire public cloud, Advanced WildFire public cloud, URL Filtering, Advanced URL Filtering, DNS Security, Threat Vault, or AutoFocus, you must perform one of the following three actions before your certificates expire on December 31, 2023: (2a) install a specific content update on your impacted firewalls and Panorama appliances OR (2b) upgrade your impacted firewalls and Panorama appliances OR (2c) enable device certificates on your impacted firewalls and Panorama appliances.

Hello,

I'm coming back to you regarding our alert message.

We no longer have support on our device for 6 months.

My Firewall PaloAlto is :  PA-3020 ( EOS October 31, 2024)

How to download and upgrade our device?

we can't find the version 9.1.14-h7 on the internet.

Currently, we have the version 9.1.14-h1 installed.

 

Thanks for your help

Hello everyone,

In my company a FW has been left without upgrading to any of the recommended versions. Now when I try to update it I get the following error:

 

Is there any way to update the FW to the recommended version? We already tried to download the image and load it manually on the computer but the error is the same.

 

We have opened a case with TAC but have not received a response yet.

 

I would appreciate some help
