PAN-OS SDWAN tunnel failover

L1 Bithead

Hi All,


  I have recently setup a SD-WAN between 2 PA firewalls. a default route was created automatically to sdwan.1. Though when one of the interface failed, it is not able to failover to the remaining tunnel which mapped to sdwan.2. May I know if I need to manually create a route for sdwan.2 though I could not find the interface under the static route setting (p.s I am using static route in my testing environment)



Best Regards,

It seems to me that some of the parameter has been created wrongly by auto vpn. A backup physical interface has been attached to sdwan.902 instead of 901. And there is no zone configuration for two tunnels on hub firewall. I have attached the screenshots here. Could anyone kindly suggest what could be done to resolve the issue? Thank youImage 46.jpgImage 48.jpg


I would firstly force the template value. Those tunnel interfaces should have zone-internal attached to them. 

If that does not work, create a layer 3 zone and make a dummy change on panorama and commit to the firewall. 



  I do use panorama to do the config and tried to force template value already. Can you share what config to be changed on panorama as I cannot override the setting on the firewall itself and somehow the interface seems to be attached to the wrong tunnel as the screenshot shown
