PANOS Release 6.1.3 Required to login twice to get access

L4 Transporter


I've a cluster of PA500 running 6.1.3.

When I try to login to the system (with the GUI), the login always fails and I'm redirected back to the login page.

After login again, it works fine...

Any idea ?

Did you check authd logs to see if the authentication is successful during the first attempt?

If you seeing nothing unusual, you might want to check if disk-space is almost full.

>show system disk-space

Thank You.


Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sda3             3.8G  1.6G  2.1G  43% /

/dev/sda5             7.6G  3.5G  3.8G  49% /opt/pancfg

/dev/sda6             3.8G  1.6G  2.0G  45% /opt/panrepo

tmpfs                 459M   69M  390M  16% /dev/shm

/dev/sda8             125G  8.5G  110G   8% /opt/panlogs

So, the issue is not coming from the disk space...



What does the system log show for the first failed login attempt?

Is the administrator account utilizing local authentication or an external source (LDAP, RADIUS, Kerberos)?

Do you experience the same issue when connecting via SSH or just the WEBUI?
