Restore Panorama

L4 Transporter

Hi,

 

I'm trying to understand the process for restoring a Panorama (virtual appliance).   For example, say for whatever reason the Panorama appliance won't boot.

 

- How to backup the entire configuration for the restore ? Is this the option from Panorama > Setup > Operation > Export named Panorama configuration snapshot?

-  If the above is correct, do you then just download the Panorama OVA, deploy it and then import the file saved previously?

 

Is that all that is needed?  I'm assuming this process would lose all logs

Well.... great follow up question.... you will need to generate another OTP (one time password) to "synch" the communication back to your Panorama.  I imagine that you can rebuild your panorama, and then re-issue another OTP from the Support Portal.

Yes that is right way to export the Panorama configuration and import it when needed.

Yes you will lose traffic logs going to Panorama if Panorama does not boot up.

I agree with @MP18 that the steps are that simple... There are a few others that also need to be performed.

Once the OVA is deployed, make sure you re-add in the serial number of the Panorama into the new Panorama.

You will want to ensure you have the same dynamic updates (or more current), and the same major (8.x, 9x. 10.x ) of the Panorama software.

Thanks for the info.  Excellent point on the license, forgot that one.  It does bring up a different question.  Does this process impact Cortex Data Lake or would that continue to work as normal?
