Panorama Template Push to Firewall always fails, unless you push Device Group at the same time

L0 Member

Panorama - VM ESXi - Panorama mode - version 10.1.4


When Panorama Template Push to Firewall always this always fails, reports out of sync and when you log directly to the firewall you do not see the changes.


When you push Device Group and the Template from Panorama  to the firewalls, the Template changes are successfully.


The options enabled/disabled when pushing are the following

"Merge with Device Candidate config" is ticked

"Force Template values" is un-ticked - but has been tried with being ticked and still fails


Has anyone else seen issues pushing Templates to Firewalls ?

Thank you for the post @CarlUK


without looking into error log what is causing the failure, it is hard to judge what the root cause is. Would it be possible to share error message? If you still have some Firewall with Template out of sync, you can recall the error message by going to: Panorama > Managed Devices > Summary > [Look for out of sync Firewall] > [Navigate to: "Template Last Commit State"].


Kind Regards

Had the exact same issue, and it turned out to be a vm plugin issue. Update the VM plugins. If youre running panorama, make sure panorama is running the same plugin as the managed FWs
