L2 Linker


I have the experience how to upgrade PAN os with ON-PRIMES .But I don't know how different on AWS and what is impact.I would like to upgrade my PA on AWS.

my pan-os is 8.1.So It is very old . I would like to upgrade latest version. So let me know what is the best practice to upgrade PA on AWS.

How much downtime i need to upgrade ?

I noticed in doc as below : So if i will upgrate 8.1 to 9.1.3 ( 8.1=>9.0=>9.1=>9.1.1=>9.1.2=>9.1.3)  

total downtime is 3 x 5= 15 hours ?

2-3 hours to upgrade a slower or older system, depending on config. Multiply if upgrading across multiple versions.

Just wondering how did you action this? In place upgrade or did you spin a new VM and changed routing?

After connecting the NICs to the Palo Alto, you must reboot.
