Validation failed when committing a changes to managed firewalls from Panorama

L2 Linker

Last week we made a changes(added new IP addresses as a Source) to the existing security policy and tried verifying by validating template/device group for target firewalls however it results in validation failed with following errors.



user-id-agent unexpected here

Vsys is invalid

Device is invalid

Configuration is invalid


Any help and suggestions are highly appreciated.


Hi @Kathiravan_R ,

Such error are usually observed after PanOS upgrade, when config is not preperly migrated to the format for the new version.

Have you done any upgrade recently? Either for the FW or for the Panorama?

Hi @aleksandar.astardzhiev 

Yes you are correct, there was a PAN OS 10.1.5-h1 upgrade performed for Panorama few days ago.

May I know how to mitigate this issue? will OS downgrading solve this issue ? Please advise.
