Did you check so the SSL is correct at your server? Perhaps it expired or something else that makes the SSL to fail when connecting?

This is one Window AD domain server ( and PAN Agent has been installed.

The SSL certificate should not have any error.

The key issue is that the system administrator receives a lot of the alert message.

This is not reasonable if this cause is certificate expired.

Hi Bobby, could you please confirm what version of PAN-OS you are running on the device in question as well as the version of your PAN Agent?  These errors may be related to a version mis-match between your firewall and the pan/userid agent.

Pan-Agent is version 3.1.2 and Pan-OS is version 4.0.9

I would suggest you open a case online and provide a tech support file for further debugging.
