Using the commands you wrote the system accepts:

debug software restart process management-server
debug software restart process device-server

and the system accept ok. [The syntax now is ok]

But the both systems does not complete the new antivirus installing commands.

Both the systems remain at the 59% of the progress.





In the last few days I have updated the system by manually restarting the appliances but new antivirus updates appear every day and it is important that PA can install the updates automatically.



The problem appeared only after updating the PA 820 to version 11.0.1.
