Troubleshooting device with orange status light

Greetings all!

I have a pan200 with an orange status light. Power, fan and temp are all green. Status stays this way through reboots and the web server on the mgmt port is not responding.

If I console in, the only issues I have seen so far are the TP licenses just expired. I would love some pointers are troubleshooting commands to run to figure out what is going on.

How long has it been since the status light is orange ? The device has to complete a auto commit when the device reboots. Once the auto commit completes then the status light turns green. I would at least wait for 15-20 minutes for the auto commit to complete and the status light to turn green.

It has been orange for about four days. :-P After the past reboot, it has been powered on for a full 24 hours.

I take it back. The current up time is over 2 days.

It also does not respond to pings or pass traffic. This was NOT following any software update or anything. Client left office one day and it worked fine and next morning, it was in this state.

What PAN OS version is the firewall currently running ? Have you tried a hard reboot (unplug the power cable wait for 5 minutes and then replug the power cable back)  on the firewall. Can you paste the output of -

>show jobs all

>show management-clients

you may do factory reset after backing up the config.

show jobs all doesn't show anything running.

Is there an easy way to backup the config with only console access? I don't have an scp box onsite to shoot the config to. That was the only option I saw.

I don't know except for scp or tftp

if you don't have backup file for a working one maybe you can try
