Question related to the PA-VM Management interface

L1 Bithead

Hello all, 


I have a VM-100 appliance deployed in my lab and I came across an issue with the firewall not having IP reachability to the servers that are connected to different ports on the firewall. I'm aware that the PA uses it's Management interface for services like ping, dns and etc by default. 


I have two security zones inside e1/2 and dmz e1/3, and I have a windows server connected to each interface and they're on different subnets. Fore some reason the firewall is unable to ping the servers and the vice versa. What am I missing ?


Thank you

Hi @BehzadTalsoleman,


The management interface is out-of-band.  Is there a route from your management interface to the servers ?

Can you ping the servers sourcing the ping from your int1/2 and int1/3 respectively ? (using the CLI 'ping source x.x.x.x host x.x.x.x')


Cheers !
