Interpret the LEDs on a PA-5200 Series Firewall

Learn how to interpret the status LEDs on a PA-5200 Series firewall.
The following table describes how to interpret the status LEDs on a PA-5200 Series firewall.
LEDDescription
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 PA-5200 Series Environmental Specifications for the temperature range.
FANS
Green—The fan trays and all fans are operating normally.
Red—One or more fans failed on one or both of the fan trays. To determine which fan tray has a failure, check the system log or check the LED on the fan trays.
PWR 1 and PWR 2 (Power)
While 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—Power supply is present but is not working.
ALM (Alarm)
Red—A hardware component failed, such as a power supply failure, a firewall failure that caused an HA failover, a drive failure, or hardware is overheating and the temperature is above the high temperature threshold.
Off—The firewall is operating normally.
Ethernet Port LEDs
RJ-45 and AUX LEDs
These ports have two LEDs.
  • Left LED—Solid green indicates a network link.
  • Right LED—Blinking green indicates network activity.
SFP, SFP+, and QSFP LEDs
These ports have one green LED.
  • Solid green indicates a network link.
  • Blinking green indicates network activity.
Back Panel LEDs
Power supply
The AC and DC power supplies have a FAIL and an OK LED.
  • FAIL
    • Solid yellow—The power supply failed. This can also indicate a fan failure or overheating condition.
    • Blinking yellow—The power supply is outside of tolerance levels.
    • Off—Power supply is operating normally.
  • OK
    • Solid green—The power supply is operating normally.
    • Blinking green—The power input is present but the power supply is disabled by the system.
    • Off—No power input or the power supply failed.
Fan tray
Green—The fan trays and all fans are operating normally.
Red—One or more fans in the fan tray failed (see Replace a Fan Tray on a PA-5200 Series Firewall).
