GlobalProtect Random disconnects

L1 Bithead


Has anyone else have issues with random GP disconnections since recently (May/June/July 2021) on GP version 5.0.x and 5.2.x ? 

It started around one month ago throughout the whole company and we weren't able to figure out what's going on till now.

There is no preceding events logged in the GP debug or dump level trace that would point to an application crash or network failure. 

The same goes for the event viewer logs.

At a random point in time the agent sends a disconnect message to the GP service which start the disconnection process


GPA log:

I started seeing the "DevNode Status 0x1802401, Problem 0x16." log in the driver debug file around the same time the issues started happening, but I'm not sure (yet) if it's the cause or result of the disconnect.


As far as I'm concerned these messages are related to Platform Power Management , so I'm following up on disabling the Power Save and Green Energy Efficiency modes on the NICs.


The disconnects happen on both  wired and wireless connections.


We have a TAC case opened for this but haven't heard back from them.


If anyone had issues like this recently, I'd appreciate your time to share your findings.

We see in the logs at

The disconnect happens, but nothing else showing up in the logs prior. At least nothing is showing up here.


When this happens, does it disconnect ALL users or just random?

It's random

I understand it being random.. 

Is this affecting everyone? both Mac and PC?

Also what hardware/version of PAN-OS?

Where are you going with these questions? Do you know of an issue that's affecting both MACs and PCs or a specific PAN-OS or hardware version? If so, please share them and I can decide if it's feasible for me.

I haven't asked for troubleshooting advice but for similar symptoms and how there were handled.


Obviously there was a ton of logs showing up prior to the disconnect messages but haven't shown any errors or failures.


Right now I'm following on the HIP report processing which is the most likely cause of the issues.

Hi - Were you able to figure this out? I'm experiencing the same issue for about 20 users out of thousands that work fine (or at least aren't telling me).

We are noticing the same issue but with GP v6.1.1-5


Any resolution on this issue for anyone?

Thank You,

I have also just run into this issue with a user. The VPN disconnects randomly throughout the day. Anyone find the root cause or fix? Thanks
