Interpret the PA-3200 Series Status LEDs

Learn how to interpret the status LEDs on a PA-3200 Series firewall.
The following table describes how to interpret the status LEDs on a PA-3200 Series firewall.
Front Panel LEDs
PWR (Power)
  • Green—The firewall is powered on.
  • Off—The firewall is not powered on or an error occurred with the internal power system (for example, power is not within tolerance levels).
STS (Status)
  • Green—The firewall is operating normally.
  • Yellow—The firewall is booting.
HA (High Availability)
  • Green—The firewall is the active peer in an active/passive configuration.
  • Yellow—The firewall is the passive peer in an active/passive configuration.
  • Off—High availability (HA) is not operational on this firewall.
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).
TMP (Temperature)
  • Green—The firewall temperature is normal.
  • Yellow—The firewall temperature is outside tolerance levels.
See the PA-3200 Series Environmental Specifications for the operating temperature range.
ALM (Alarm)
  • Red—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.
  • Off—The firewall is operating normally.
  • Green—The fan tray and all fans are operating normally.
  • Red—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 right.
  • Green—The power supply is functioning normally.
  • Red—The power supply is present but is not working.
Ethernet Port LEDs
These ports have two LEDs.
  • Left LED—Solid green indicates a network link.
  • Right LED—Blinking green indicates network activity.
These ports have one green LED.
  • Solid 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)
    • Solid green—Input voltage operating within the normal specified range.
    • Blinking green—Overvoltage or undervoltage warning.
    • Off—Exceeded the overvoltage or undervoltage threshold or no input power.
  • Output LED (Bottom)
    • Solid green—Main output and standby output enabled; no power supply warnings or faults.
    • Blinking green—Standby output enabled with no power supply warning or fault detected.
    • Blinking yellow—Power supply warning detected.
    • Solid yellow—Power supply fault detected.
