Hi, I want to upgrade PAN OS version 7.0.5-h5 to 7.1.14, so what the versio steps , or can I directly install to 7.1.14?

As per current upgrade recommendation:

  1. Download and install 7.1.0
  2. Reboot
  3. Downloaf and install 7.1.14
  4. Reboot


These steps are required to make sure that you don't run into problems with PAN-OS Upgrades that get too big because then the firewall does not need to combine the base and minor image into one upgrade package.

please check out this article that highlights upgrade best practices:


the process is indeed as @Remo explains

  • download and install base, reboot is not required for the 7.1 base (it does become recommended in 8.0)
  • download and install maintenance version,
  • reboot

PAN-OS 7.1 Policy behavior change application-default In PAN-OS 7.1:



when a security policy rule is configured with the Application setting 'Any' and the Service setting 'application-default', the rule Action is now applied only on the standard ports for any application. For example, if a security policy rule is configured to allow any application traffic on the default application ports, web-browsing is allowed only on port 80. In earlier PAN-OS release versions, the Service setting 'application-default' was not enforced when configured with the Application setting Any.


As per my experiance i had changed all of security policy rules were configured with the Application Service setting 'application-default' to any to.
