Learn how to interpret the status LEDs on a PA-3200 Series
The following table describes how to interpret the status LEDs
on a PA-3200 Series firewall.
Front Panel LEDs
—The firewall is powered
—The firewall is not powered on or an error occurred
with the internal power system (for example, power is not within
—The firewall is operating
—The firewall is booting.
HA (High Availability)
—The firewall is the active
peer in an active/passive configuration.
—The firewall is the passive peer in an active/passive
—High availability (HA) is not operational on this
In an active/active configuration, the HA
LED only indicates HA status for the local firewall and has two
possible states (green or off); it does not indicate HA connectivity
of the peer. Green indicates that the firewall is either active-primary
or active-secondary and off indicates that the firewall is in any
other state (For example, non-functional or suspended).
—The firewall temperature
—The firewall temperature is outside tolerance
—A hardware failure, such
as a power supply failure, a firewall failure that caused an HA
failover, a drive failure, or the hardware overheated and exceeded
the high temperature threshold.
—The firewall is operating normally.
—The fan tray and all fans
are operating normally.
—A fan failed. If one of the three fans fail, the
firewall will continue to operate but if two fans fail, the firewall
will shut down.
PWR 1 and PWR 2 (Power)
When facing the back of the firewall, power
supply 1 (PWR 1) is on the left and power supply 2 (PWR 2) is on
—The power supply is functioning
—The power supply is present but is not working.
Ethernet Port LEDs
These ports have two LEDs.
—Solid green indicates a network link.
—Blinking green indicates network activity.
SFP, SFP+, and QSFP LEDs
These ports have one green LED.
green indicates a network link.
Blinking green indicates network activity.
Back Panel LEDs
Power supply LEDs
The AC and
DC power supply LEDs function the same way. With AC power supplies,
the input LED indicates the status of the AC input power and the
output LED indicates the DC output that powers the firewall. With
DC power supplies, the input and output are both DC.
The top LED provides status of the power
input and the bottom LED provides status of the power supply output.
Input LED (Top)
operating within the normal specified range.
—Overvoltage or undervoltage warning.
—Exceeded the overvoltage or undervoltage threshold
or no input power.
Output LED (Bottom)
and standby output enabled; no power supply warnings or faults.
—Standby output enabled with no power supply
warning or fault detected.
—Power supply warning detected.
—Power supply fault detected.
Fan tray LED
—The fan trays and all
fans are operating normally.
