Upgrade from 7.0.12 to 8.0.6-h3

L4 Transporter

Hi,

 

I have checked the PAN-OS upgrade document and find it bit confusing. Using standalone device. 

Can someone please confirm if the following upgrade path will be correct?

 

7.0.12 —> download 7.1.0 —> Install —> Reboot

Download 7.1.15 --> Install

Download 8.0.0 —> Install —> Reboot

Download 8.0.6-h3 —> Install —> Reboot

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Farzana,

 

Using the following Best Practices document : Best-Practices-for-PAN-OS-Upgrade

 

It is best practice to always download and install the latest maintenance release.

 

So if you are running 7.0.12 it's best practice to download, install and reboot to 7.0.19 first.

Download and install 7.1.0 (base version).

Download and install 7.1.15, and reboot to complete the upgrade.

Save/export tech support and Device state and save named device config snapshots (this is in case downgrade is needed).

Download and install 8.0.0 (base version). (Reboot recommended as per Best Practices guide).

Download and install 8.0.6-h3, and reboot to complete the upgrade.

 

Cheers !

What if I am on 7.1.13 and want to upgrade to 8.x and I have deleted 7.1?

Hello,

You should be OK since the running version you are on has the files from the base code. It would just prevent you from failing back to any version of 7 unless you download it first. Even on a PA-200, I can keep several version of code without filling up the disk. so you should be safe to have 7.1.0, 7.13, 8.0.1, and 8.0.x at the same time.

Hi @jdprovine,

 

You can pick up halfway the process.

If you're on 7.1.13 and want to goto 8.x you can follow the best practices and install the latest maintenance release first :

 

Download and install 7.1.15 (or whichever version is latest in the 7.1.x branch), and reboot to complete the upgrade.

Save/export tech support and Device state and save named device config snapshots (this is in case downgrade is needed).

Download and install 8.0.0 (base version). (Reboot recommended as per Best Practices guide).

Download and install 8.0.6-h3, and reboot to complete the upgrade.

I have deleted the base 7.1 to make more room

@kiwi

 

So it doesn't matter that I deleted 7.1 to make more disk space?
