PANOS upgrade VM-100 over KVM Virtual environment

L1 Bithead

This is the our internet firewall hosted by our ISP in the cloud. I am currently in PANOS Version 8.1.3 on PA-VM-100. The VM mode is KVM.  And now they have the new PANOS version 9.0.0, when I tried to download, it reaches half way and fails with:


  • Failed to download due to generic communication error. Please try again later.

Does anybody has solution to this?

The generic comm error is hard to determine. However I would revcommend not upgrading to 9.0 unless there is a feature you absolutly need. There are still things they are working out with it and can cause you more harm than good, potentially.


Take a read at this



Hi Klier,


Thanks for your input. Exactly what was in my mind and now its clear. However I think i should at least get ready for it by upgrading to the latest maintainance release of 8.1.6. Any major issues people been reporting about this?




I dont know since I dont run that code. However I do recommend you read hte release notes and maybe post in the general forum is anyone is having issues with that code. I do it quite often just to see what others are running into, if anything.



Thank you
