Hi @AhamadullahM ,


The problem may not be your number of addresses or dynamic groups, but rather the number of entries in your external-ip-lists, external-predefined-ip-lists and predefined ip-block-lists.


On the NGFW (not Panorama), click on each custom EDL under Objects > External Dynamic List (or External Block List) and then click on List Entries and Exceptions and add up the total number of entries for all of them.


What PAN-OS version and platform do you have?

Hi ,


The current PAN-OS version is 10.1.5

I have added more info, We have 3 administrator profiles and two administrator profiles have the facing issue. 

Hello AhamadullahM,


You need to "cleanup" your config : remove the address objects you are not needing anymore, aggregate some entries (2 IP address in the same subnet can be directly defined in a subnet for instance).

For now, you simply need to remove 20 address objects.

Or you consider to upgrade to a platform with higher platform limit.

Also, if you are in multi-vsys, upgrading to 10.2 can save you some objects (thank to how shared objects are managed from 10.2).
