You should use User-ID agent 6.0.0 version as well. If you are planning to use 6.0.5, you can then you can go for 6.0.5-h3. Hope this halped.

Hello COS,

There are no dependencies between PAN OS and User-ID agent. Hence, you may install the PAN OS first then verify the User-ID functionality and then proceed for the User-ID upgrade.

Since you are looking to go to 6.0.5, you may want to look at 6.0.8 since there are more fixes to known vulnerabilities. Also Upgrading your agents to the highest 6 version wouldn't hurt either. I have two serer that run the agent and I usually upgrade one then wait a day or two then the other. That way if one goes south due to the upgrade, it wont take both of them down.

Good luck!
