VSYS and Commit

L2 Linker


I had a consultant who states that you can commit only the VSYS you modify and not commit the rest of the configuration.  I have looked at some documentation and see no refernce to this.

My question is this:  Is this a fact?  If yes where can I find the information to understand the type of configuration required.  I see this as a possible way to shorten commit times.

Thank you for your time.

In PAN-OS 4.1 you can perform a commit by VSYS from the command line:


commit {force}


partial device-and-network excluded |

partial shared-object excluded |

partial vsys <value> |

partial no-vsys



> force — Forces the commit command in the event of a conflict

> partial — Commits the specified part of the configuration

+ device-and-network — Excludes device and network configurations from the commit (configurations under

config/mgt-config, config/devices/platform, config/devices/deviceconfig, and config/devices/network)

+ shared-object — Excludes shared object configurations from the commit (configurations under (config/

shared; also excludes config/devices/vsys if in single vsys mode)

+ vsys — Commits only the specified virtual system configurations

> no-vsys — Excludes all virtual systems from the commit (configurations under config/devices/vsys)
