How to restore our Azure firewall setup if upgrade activity fails

L2 Linker


Would like to know steps one needs to follow in case our devices hosted in the Azure Public cloud fails/goes dead during firmware upgrade activity. We have VM-series firewalls and Panorama on Azure. 


Our firewall pair in HA is implemented using "Custom Template" on Azure which creates two firewalls along with NSG, Load balancers etc. and we need to manually enter all the details like FW hostname, Interface IP etc. pertaining to our environment. ( Not sure if this only creates VMs or also the other associated elements like Storage, Database etc. )

Hello All,

Can anyone help here 🙂

I have the same question. I am unable to create a successful backup in Azure and would like to understand how to restore in case of failed upgrade. Palo Alto team? Anyone??
