Panorama or Firewall PAN-OS? What to upgrade first?

Hi Guys,

 

We currently have 12 Palo Alto firewall appliances and 1 Panorama management server. Panorama version is currently 5.1.9 and the firewalls are all on version 5.0.14.
We are looking at upgrading the entire estate to version 7.0.8  and it’s a matter of how best to achieve this. The question is what to upgrade first to the 7.0.8? Panorama or FW? Will Panorama running 7.0.8 will happily manage appliances running 5.0.14. If Yes, where can l find this upgrade recommendation?

 

Cheers all,

Upgrade the panorama first otherwise firewall will appear disconnected on panorama. If you upgrade panorama to 7.0.x and firewall is on 5.x.x it works but there are new feature that you should not use if you use them you will not be able to commit on firewall so its good to keep panorama and firewall on smae base version.

 

Hope this helps!
