We started configuring an HA pair of 5020's on 6.0.3. We have yet to pass any traffic through it. I would like to get feedback on real world Palo Alto firewalls that are running 6.0.x and how stable/unstable they are.
I did read one thread where a few customers are having HA issues but we have yet tp experience those issues.
If any customer had HA issue in 6.0.3, it doesn't mean you will experience the same.
Each bug triggers in specific environment, so you shouldn't worry about other peoples experience as long as TAC has recommended 6.0.3.
While it is true that bugs are specific, those of us running HA and looking to upgrade to 6.0.3 would have more confidence if the specifics of the bug were available. And I have had trouble getting those details on this issue.
How are we to know we won't be affected if the details of what causes the secondary to suspend are not available?
I have over 30 devices running on 6.0.4 without any major issue.
The only issue I have had with 6.0.4 is the tagging issue. If you have a policy tagged and make changes to the policy, it will usually lose the tag. This is supposed to be fixed in 6.0.5.
No issues otherwise.
If you are running OSPF (over an IPSec tunnel interface) and you want to move to 6.0.4, be careful !
In fact, the tunnel interface is moved into 'passive' state even if you disable the 'passive' flag state in the config...
Result: OSPF neighbors never exchange routing infos !!
We upgraded our Active/Passive cluster "PAN-3020" from 5.0.6 and 6.0.3
Without any problems, they are very stable for us.
