PAN OS upgrade from 8.1.15 to 9.1.12-h3

L1 Bithead

Hi, 

My client is planning to upgrade their Panorama and PA5220 (x4) current PAN OS v8.1.15 to 9.1.12-h3.

Panorama > PA5220 x2 (HA) 

                  > PA5220 x2 (HA)

 

Just want a second opinion of below upgrade path is correct or not, and other pre-cautionary advise.

 

1. download 9.0
2. download and install and reboot 9.0.14-h3
3. download 9.1.0
4. download and install and reboot 9.1.12-h3

 

Upgrade Panorama first then upgrade PA5220 HA (passive) then failover to active, upgrade PA5220 HA (passive)

Not sure above steps can rollback to 8.1.15, please recommend.

HI 

 

The path looks good to me to be honest, it follows the suggested method as shown here  as for the roll back I suspect that there will be some migration involved with those versions but the upgrade/downgrade considerations can be found here

Hope this helps.

Hi @SetoChiShun ,

 

As @laurence64 mentioned, the upgrade path looks good.

Note however, that reverting back (using the command debug swm revert) is not possible between major versions (only possible between minor versions).

... additional device Log Collector (M600) that need to upgrade from v8.1.15 to v9.1.12-h3

Panorama - M600 > PA5220 x2 (HA) 

                  > PA5220 x2 (HA)

L1 Bithead

... for M600 upgrade via Panorama,

 

1. download 9.0
2. download and install and reboot 9.0.14-h3
3. download 9.1.0
4. download and install and reboot 9.1.12-h3

 

Any advise on upgrade path for both Panorama & M600....

On upgrade path, please advise whether to perform device side-by-side download/install Panorama & M600 to 9.0.14-h3 then download/install 9.1.12-h3 OR upgrade panorama (8.1.15 > 9.0.14-h3 > 9.1.12-h3) then M600 (8.1.15 > 9.0.14-h3 > 9.1.12-h3)?

BTW, I cannot find any downgrade (fallback) procedures on M600, please advise whether M600 can downgrade to previous version once upgrade 9.0.14-h3 or 9.1.12-h3?
