BGP issue between On-pre PA and Azure via a site to site VPN

L1 Bithead

I am trying to setup Azue site to site VPN with BGP. IPsec tunnel came up successfully and I can ping from PA BGP Peer IP to Azure BGP peer IP. However, BGP session can not be established. It gets stuck in connect state. I have been reseraching Azure VPN with BGP example in the Inernet but I could not find any example. PA BGP is compatble with Azure BGP?

BGP is BGP and it is compatible. I suggest to trouble shoot it as you would troubleshoot a physical device attempting to establish a BGP peer relationship that is getting stuck in a connect state. 

We upgareded the PAN from 7.1.14 to 8.0.10. This solved the issue. Now Azure VPN and BGP is working as expected.

HI , 

Can you please share the configuration.
