Manage High Availability

How to automate high availability settings on PAN-OS with OpenConfig models.
The following command updates various high availability settings on the firewall:
gnmic -a firewall:9339 -e JSON_IETF set --update-path "/" --update-file highavailability.json
Only the interfaces of type
HA
are currently supported with this model.
{ "ha-groups": { "ha-group": [ { "id": 1, "config": { "id": 1, "ha-enabled": true, "ha-mode": "ACTIVE_PASSIVE" }, "control-link": { "config": { "control-link-interface": "ethernet1/7", "control-link-ipv4": "192.168.1.16/31", "control-link-peer-ipv4": "192.168.1.17/31" } }, "data-link": { "data-link-interface": "ethernet1/16", "data-link-ipv4": "192.168.1.20/31" } } ] } }
A successful update returns the following output:
Set Response: { "timestamp": 1625780831682622866, "time": "2021-07-08T14:47:11.682622866-07:00", "results": [ { "operation": "UPDATE" } ] }
The UI displays the following after updating the HA settings.
