Panorama can't proxy web interface after upgrade to 8.1.16

L4 Transporter

Upgraded Panorama to 8.1.16.  No issues with the upgrade.


Upgraded all our PA-220s to 8.1.16.  No issues with the upgrade.


Upgraded our PA-5220s to 8.1.16 (from 8.1.9-h4).  If I connect directly to the management IP, I can login to the web interface.  If I use Panorama's drop-down list to switch to the firewall, it gives a "createRemoteAppwebSession: response code received 302" error with a "Switch to Panorama" link that takes me back to the Panorama interface.


Pushing commits to the PA-5220s works.  And direct logins work.  But Panorama links to the firewall web GUIs fails.


Rebooting the Panorama instance doesn't help.


Anyone come across anything similar?  Google searches for that error message just bring up captive portal redirect stuff.

Same here with Panorama PA-100 and 2x2 PA5050 Firewalls, after upgrade to 8.1.16 (coming from 8.1.15).

our VM-300Firewall has the same issue , where Panorama was running on 9.0.9

Firewall on 8.1.16(after upgrade- i too faced the same error for temp i have downgraded the OS version  again to 8.1.15-h3 and it working up .

Its  has to be bug with version 8.1.16.


Error:CreateRemoteAPPwebsession:Responce code received 302

The latest update to Chrome 85 has fixed the "Connect through NAT'd connection" issue.  Currently using Chrome 85.0.4183.102, and I can login to Panorama again.  🙂


The fix for the "Switch device context" issue is targeted for 8.1.17 sometime in October.

After downgrade Panorama to 8.1.15 the issue still exists. Connect from Panorama to FW v8.1.16 is not possible.

Correct.  The issue is with PanOS 8.1.16.  If the firewalls are running that, Panorama can't switch device context to them.  You need to downgrade Panorama and the firewalls to 8.1.15.


Or, 8.1.17 has been released, and they say this has been fixed with that release.  We haven't upgraded any firewalls yet to test this.

I just upgraded one of my boxes 820, to 8.1.17. 

the bug is fixed.


Thanks for the confirmation!  🙂

I have upgraded my pano to 8.1.17 but the switching issue still persist.

pano cant load firewalls that are using 8.1.16 version.

Correct. It's an issue in PanOS and Panorama version 8.1.16.


Both Panorama and the firewalls need to be running 8.1.15 or 8.1.17.
