how big is the difference of PAN-OS between panorama and the device?

it appears panorama is tryting to push an sdwan interface and the firewall isn't having it

Panorama is on 9.1.1 and Palo Alto VM is 9.0.6

Is it because of Panorama SDWAN introduced in 9.1.1 that Im not able to push the config?

Panorama should normalize configuration to lower version devices

Is the firewall showing up with the right panos in managed devices? Could be an issue with panorama 9.1.1, could give .3 a shot (or get in touch with support)

I was getting the same error after adding a new device in Panorama. Panorama is running 9.1.2 and local device is 9.0.8.   Issue started after Exporting the config bundle from Panorama to the local device.  It looks like it is trying to push the "sdwan" interface which isn't available in 9.0.   I was able to get around it by deleting the "sdwan" interface.  I could not find a way in the GUI but was able to delete from the CLI using the following commands.  After deleting on both and committing in Panorama I was able to push to the device from Panorama with no errors.


On Panorama:
edit template "template name"
edit config vsys vsys1 import network
delete interface sdwan


On Local Device:
edit import network
delete interface sdwan
