PAN-OS 10.0.8 Known Issues

Review the known issues specific to the PAN-OS 10.0.8 release.
The following list includes only outstanding known issues specific to PAN-OS
10.0.8. This list includes issues specific to Panorama™, GlobalProtect™, VM-Series plugins, and WildFire®, as well as known issues that apply more generally or that are not identified by an issue ID. For a complete list of existing and addressed known issues in all PAN-OS 10.0 releases, see the Known Issues Related to PAN-OS 10.0 Releases.
Issue ID
If you use Panorama to retrieve logs from Cortex Data Lake (CDL), new log fields (including for Device-ID, Decryption, and GlobalProtect) are not visible on the Panorama web interface.
Enable duplicate logging to send the logs to CDL and Panorama. This workaround does not support Panorama virtual appliances in Management Only mode.
Upgrading a PA-220 firewall takes up to an hour or more.
PA-220 firewalls are experiencing slower web interface and CLI performance times.
Upgrading Panorama with a local Log Collector and Dedicated Log Collectors to PAN-OS 8.1 or a later PAN-OS release can take up to six hours to complete due to significant infrastructure changes. Ensure uninterrupted power to all appliances throughout the upgrade process.
A critical System log is generated on the VM-Series firewall if the minimum memory requirement for the model is not available.
  • When the memory allocated is less than 4.5GB, you cannot upgrade the firewall. The following error message displays:
    Failed to install 9.0.0 with the following error: VM-50 in 9.0.0 requires 5.5GB memory, VM-50 Lite requires 4.5GB memory.Please configure this VM with enough memory before upgrading.
  • If the memory allocation is more than 4.5GB but less that the licensed capacity requirement for the model, it will default to the capacity associated with the VM-50.
    The System log message
    System capacity adjusted to VM-50 capacity due to insufficient memory for VM-
    , indicates that you must allocate the additional memory required for licensed capacity for the firewall model.
Changes to an IoT Security subscription license take up to 24 hours to have effect on the IoT Security app.
An IoT Security production license cannot be installed on a firewall that still has a valid IoT Security eval or trial license.
Wait until the 30-day eval or trial license expires and then install the production license.
For data retrieved from Cortex Data Lake, the Threat Name column in
appears blank.
When you rename a device group, template, or template stack in Panorama that is part of a VMware NSX service definition, the new name is not reflected in NSX Manager. Therefore, any ESXi hosts that you add to a vSphere cluster are not added to the correct device group, template, or template stack and your Security policy is not pushed to VM-Series firewalls that you deploy after you rename those objects. There is no impact to existing VM-Series firewalls.
After using the firewall CLI to add a WildFire appliance with an IPv6 address, the initial connection may fail.
Retry connecting after you restart the web server with the following command:
debug software restart process web-server
A UI issue in PAN-OS renders the contents of the
Inline ML
tab in the
URL Filtering Profile
inaccessible on firewalls licensed for Advanced URL Filtering. Additionally, a message indicating that a
License required for URL filtering to function
is unavailable displays at the bottom of the UI. These errors do not affect the operation of Advanced URL Filtering or URL Filtering Inline ML.
Configuration settings for URL Filtering Inline ML must be applied through the CLI. The following configuration commands are available:
  • Define URL exceptions for specific web sites—
    set profiles url-filtering <url_filtering_profile_name> mlav-category-exception
  • Configuration settings for each inline ML model—
    set profiles url-filtering <url_filtering_profile_name> mlav-engine-urlbased-enabled
As a result of a telemetry handling update, the Source Zone field in the DNS analytics logs (viewable in the DNS Analytics tab within AutoFocus) might not display correct results.
On downgrade to PAN-OS 9.1, Enterprise Data Loss Prevention (DLP) filtering settings (
) are not removed and cause commit errors for the downgraded firewall if you do not uninstall the Enterprise DLP plugin before downgrade.
After you successfully downgrade a managed firewall to PAN-OS 9.1, commit and push from Panorama to remove the Enterprise DLP filtering settings and complete the downgrade.
  1. Downgrade your managed firewall to PAN-OS 9.1
  2. Log in to the firewall web interface and view the
    to verify all auto commits related to the downgrade have completed successfully.
  3. Log in to the Panorama web interface and
    Commit and Push

If the SD-WAN interface was Down and it comes Up during a commit (for example, if you configure it from Down to Auto), SD-WAN ignores the change and keeps the link Down in the SD-WAN connection. In this case, SD-WAN won't choose to send traffic to this link. If this is the only link to the internet, this behavior may cause an outage, including failure of the IKE negotiation between the Branch and Hub, and such Tunnel will be down.
: Commit again or toggle the interface link Down and Up; the SD-WAN statistics will be correct and the problem will resolve.

) If you configure a standard custom vulnerability signature in a custom Vulnerability Protection profile in a shared device group, the shared profile custom signatures do not populate in the other device groups when you configure a combination custom vulnerability signature.
Use the CLI to update the combination signature.
On the Panorama management server, downgrading from a PAN-OS 10.0 release to a PAN-OS 9.1 release causes Panorama commit (

After successful downgrade, reconfigure the Group By setting in the custom report.
When an application matches an SD-WAN policy and some sessions for the same application do not match an SD-WAN policy, the SD-WAN Monitoring—Traffic Characteristics screen displays the Links Used information with an SD-WAN policy and a null policy. Sessions that do not have an SD-WAN policy ID are filtered from Links Used.

When you have an active/passive HA pair of PA-3200 Series firewalls running PAN-OS 10.0.0 with NAT configured, if you upgrade one firewall to PAN-OS 10.0.1, the firewall goes to non-functional state due to a NAT oversubscription mismatch between the HA peers. The same non-functional state results if both HA peers are running PAN-OS 10.0.1 and you downgrade one to PAN-OS 10.00. The upgraded or downgraded firewall goes to non-functional state because PAN-OS 10.0.0 and 10.0.1 have different default NAT oversubscription rates.
: After an upgrade or downgrade, modify the NAT oversubscription rate on one firewall so that the rates on the HA pair match.
There is a known issue where M-100 appliances are able to download and install a PAN-OS 10.0 release image even though the M-100 appliance is no longer supported after PAN-OS 9.1. (Refer to the hardware end-of-life dates.)
On the Panorama management server, read-only Panorama administrators (

Managed Devices
If a Security rule uses a IP Address External Dynamic List (EDL) for IPv6 traffic, the information for the EDL does not display in the Source EDL or Destination EDL columns in the logs.
On a PA-7000 Series firewall chassis having multiple slots, when HA clustering is enabled on an active/active HA pair, the session table count for one of the peers can show a higher count than the actual number of active sessions on that peer. This behavior can be seen when the session is being set up on a non-cache slot (for example, when a session distribution policy is set to round-robin or session-load); it is caused by the additional cache lookup that happens when HA cluster participation is enabled.
Automatic quarantine of a device based on forwarding profile or log setting does not work on the PA-7000 Series firewalls.
After you install the device certificate on a new Panorama management server, Panorama is not able to connect to the IoT Security edge service.
Restart Panorama to connect to the IoT Security edge service.
During updates to the Device Dictionary, the IoT Security service does not push new Device-ID attributes (such as new device profiles) to the firewall until a manual commit occurs.
Perform a force commit to push the attributes in the content update to the firewall.
In an Active-Passive high availability (HA) configuration, an error displays if you create a device object on the passive device.
Load the running configuration and perform a force commit to sync the devices.
If you enter a search term for Events that are related to IoT in the System logs and apply the filter, the page displays an

In an active-passive HA configuration, tags for dynamic user groups are not persistent after rebooting the firewall because the active firewall does not sync the tags to the passive firewall during failover.
After downgrading a Panorama management server from PAN-OS 10.0 to PAN-OS 9.1, the
processes may crash when Panorama reboots.
Panorama automatically restarts the
Changing the device group configured in a monitoring definition from a child DG to a parent DG, or vice versa, might cause firewalls configured in the child DG to lose IP tag mapping information received from the monitoring definition. Only firewalls assigned to the parent DG receive IP tag mapping updates.
: Perform a manual config sync on the device group that lost the IP tag mapping information.
PA-7000 Series firewalls configured with a large number of interfaces experience impacted performance and possible timeouts when performing SNMP queries.
On the Panorama management server, adding, deleting, or modifying the upstream NAT configuration (

Current performance limitation: single data plane use only. The PA-5200 Series and PA-7000 Series firewalls that support 5G network slice security, 5G equipment ID security, and 5G subscriber ID security use a single data plane only, which currently limits the firewall performance.
The Panorama management server allows you to downgrade Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) firewalls to PAN-OS 9.1.2 and earlier releases where ZTP functionality is not supported.
ElasticSearch is forced to restart when the

) For traffic between virtual systems (inter-vsys traffic), the firewall cannot perform source NAT using dynamic IP (DIP) address translation.
Use source NAT with Dynamic IP and Port (DIPP) translation on inter-vsys traffic.
In the current release, SD-WAN auto-provisioning configures hubs and branches in a hub and spoke model, where branches don’t communicate with each other. Expected branch routes are for generic prefixes, which can be configured in the hub and advertised to all branches. Branches with unique prefixes are not published up to the hub.
Add any specific prefixes for branches to the hub advertise-list configuration.
If you use the CLI to enable the cleartext option for the Include Username in HTTP Header Insertion Entries feature, the authentication request to the firewall may become unresponsive or time out.
Dynamic tags from other sources are accessible using the CLI but do not display on the Panorama web interface.
When you try to view network QoS statistics on an SD-WAN branch or hub, the QoS statistics and the hit count for the QoS rules don’t display. A workaround exists for this issue. Please contact Support for information about the workaround.

There is an issue on M-500 Panorama management servers where any ethernet interface with an IPv6 address having Private PAN-DB-URL connectivity only supports the following format:
PAN-OS 10.0.0 does not support the XML API for GlobalProtect logs.
There is an issue where the firewall remains connected to the PAN-DB-URL server through the old management IP address on the M-500 Panorama management server, even when you configured the Eth1/1 interface.
Update the PAN-DB-URL IP address on the firewall using one of the methods below.
  • Modify the PAN-DB Server IP address on the managed firewall.

) There is an intermittent issue where an Ethernet (eth1) interface does not come up when you first boot up the firewall.
Reboot the firewall.
Alibaba Cloud runs on a KVM hypervisor and supports two Virtio modes: DPDK (default) and MMAP. If you deploy a VM-Series firewall running PAN-OS 9.0 in DPDK packet mode and you then switch to MMAP packet mode, the VM-Series firewall duplicates packets that originate from or terminate on the firewall. As an example, if a load balancer or a server behind the firewall pings the VM-Series firewall after you switch from DPDK packet mode to MMAP packet mode, the firewall duplicates the ping packets.
Throughput traffic is not duplicated if you deploy the VM-Series firewall using MMAP packet mode.
Firewalls with multiple virtual systems only
) If you configure dynamic DNS (DDNS) on a new interface (associated with vsys1 or another virtual system) and you then create a
Certificate Profile from the drop-down, you must set the location for the Certificate Profile to Shared. If you configure DDNS on an existing interface and then create a new Certificate Profile, we also recommend that you choose the Shared location instead of a specific virtual system. Alternatively, you can select a preexisting certificate profile instead of creating a new one.
You can temporarily submit a change request for a URL Category with three suggested categories; however, only two categories are supported. Do not add more than two suggested categories to a change request until we address this issue. If you submit more than two suggested categories, only the first two categories in the change request are evaluated.
You cannot unregister tags for a subnet or range in a dynamic address group from the web interface.
Use an XML API request to unregister the tags for the subnet or range.
Invalid configuration errors are not displayed as expected when you revert a Panorama management server configuration.
After you revert the Panorama configuration,

The push scope selection on the Panorama web interface displays incorrectly even though the commit scope displays as expected. This issue occurs when one administrator makes configuration changes to separate device groups or templates that affect multiple firewalls and a different administrator attempts to push those changes.
Perform one of the following tasks.
  • Initiate a
    Commit to Panorama
    operation followed by a
    Push to Devices
    operation for the modified device group and template configurations.
  • Manually select the devices that belong to the modified device group and template configurations.
If you disable DPDK mode and enable it again, you must immediately reboot the firewall.
Tagged VLAN traffic fails when sent through an SR-IOV adapter.
DGA-based threats shown in the firewall threat log display the same name for all such instances.
The firewall does not generate a notification for the GlobalProtect client when the firewall denies an unencrypted TLS session due to an authentication policy match.
The system log does not correctly display the URL for CRL files; instead, the URLs are displayed with encoded characters.
After upgrading the Panorama management server to PAN-OS 8.1 or a later release, predefined reports do not display a list of top attackers.
Create new threat summary reports (
PDF Reports
Manage PDF Summary
) containing the top attackers to mimic the predefined reports.
If you configure a HIP object to match only when a connecting endpoint is managed (
HIP Objects
), iOS and Android endpoints that are managed by AirWatch are unable to successfully match the HIP object and the HIP report incorrectly indicates that these endpoints are not managed. This issue occurs because GlobalProtect gateways cannot correctly identify the managed status of these endpoints.
Additionally, iOS endpoints that are managed by AirWatch are unable to match HIP objects based on the endpoint serial number because GlobalProtect gateways cannot identify the serial numbers of these endpoints; these serial numbers do not appear in the HIP report.
Adding a disk to a virtual appliance running Panorama 8.1 or a later release on VMware ESXi 6.5 update1 causes the Panorama virtual appliance and host web client to become unresponsive.
Upgrade the ESXi host to ESXi 6.5 update2 and add the disk again.

A firewall that is not included in a Collector Group fails to generate a system log if logs are dropped when forwarded to a Panorama management server that is running in Management Only mode.
On VM-Series firewalls that have Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) enabled and that use the i40e network interface card (NIC), the
show session info
CLI command displays an inaccurate throughput and packet rate.
Disable DPDK by running the
set system setting dpdk-pkt-io off
CLI command.
The name for an address object, address group, or an external dynamic list must be unique. Duplicate names for these objects can result in unexpected behavior when you reference the object in a policy rule.
For administrator accounts that you created in PAN-OS 8.0.8 and earlier releases, the firewall does not apply password profile settings (
Password Profiles
) until after you upgrade to PAN-OS 8.0.9 or a later release and then only after you modify the account passwords. (Administrator accounts that you create in PAN-OS 8.0.9 or a later release do not require you to change the passwords to apply password profile settings.)
When DPDK is enabled on the VM-Series firewall with i40e virtual function (VF) driver, the VF does not detect the link status of the physical link. The VF link status remains up, regardless of changes to the physical link state.
HTTP Header Insertion does not work when jumbo frames are received out of order.
The firewall and Panorama web interfaces display vulnerability threat IDs that are not available in PAN-OS 9.0 releases (
Security Profiles
Vulnerability Protection
). To confirm whether a particular threat ID is available in your release, monitor the release notes for each new Applications and Threats content update or check the Palo Alto Networks Threat Vault to see the minimum PAN-OS release version for a threat signature.
When you configure a VM-500 firewall with an SCTP Protection profile (
Security Profiles
SCTP Protection
) and you try to add the profile to an existing Security Profile Group (
Security Profile Groups
), the Security Profile Group doesn’t list the SCTP Protection profile in its drop-down list of available profiles.
Create a new Security Profile Group and select the SCTP Protection profile from there.
When you configure a firewall running PAN-OS 9.0 as an nCipher HSM client, the web interface on the firewall displays the nCipher server status as Not Authenticated, even though the HSM state is up (
The memory-optimized VM-50 Lite intermittently performs slowly and stops processing traffic when memory utilization is critically high. To prevent this issue, make sure that you do not:
  • Switch to the firewall
    on the Panorama management server.
  • Commit changes when a dynamic update is being installed.
  • Generate a custom report when a dynamic update is being installed.
  • Generate custom reports during a commit.
When the firewall performs slowly, or you see a critical System log for memory utilization, wait for 5 minutes and then manually reboot the firewall.
Use the Task Manager to verify that you are not performing memory intensive tasks such as installing dynamic updates, committing changes or generating reports, at the same time, on the firewall.
On a VM-Series firewall, the
clear session all
CLI command does not clear GTP sessions.
In rare cases, a PA-5200 Series firewall (with an FE100 network processor) that has session offload enabled (default) incorrectly resets the UDP checksum of outgoing UDP packets.
In PAN-OS 8.0.6 and later releases, you can persistently disable session offload for only UDP traffic using the
set session udp-off load no
CLI command.
The VM-Series firewall on Google Compute Platform does not publish firewall metrics to Google Stack Monitoring when you manually configure a DNS server IP address (
The VM-Series firewall on Google Cloud Platform must use the DNS server that Google provides.
SSL decryption based on ECDSA certificates does not work when you import the ECDSA private keys onto an nCipher nShield hardware security module (HSM).
Endpoints failed to authenticate to GlobalProtect through Kerberos when you specify an FQDN instead of an IP address in the Kerberos server profile (

Replace the FQDN with the IP address in the Kerberos server profile.
PA-7000 Series, PA-5200 Series, and PA-3200 Series firewalls configured in tap mode don’t close offloaded sessions after processing the associated traffic; the sessions remain open until they time out.
Configure the firewalls in virtual wire mode instead of tap mode, or disable session offloading by running the
set session off load no
CLI command.
In WildFire appliance clusters that have three or more nodes, the Panorama management server does not support changing node roles. In a three-node cluster for example, you cannot use Panorama to configure the worker node as a controller node by adding the HA and cluster controller configurations, configure an existing controller node as a worker node by removing the HA configuration, and then commit and push the configuration. Attempts to change cluster node roles from Panorama results in a validation error—the commit fails and the cluster becomes unresponsive.
The firewall does not generate a packet capture (pcap) when a Data Filtering profile blocks files.
When you import a two-node WildFire appliance cluster into the Panorama management server, the controller nodes report their state as out-of-sync if either of the following conditions exist:
  • You did not configure a worker list to add at least one worker node to the cluster. (In a two-node cluster, both nodes are controller nodes configured as an HA pair. Adding a worker node would make the cluster a three-node cluster.)
  • You did not configure a service advertisement (either by enabling or not enabling advertising DNS service on the controller nodes).
There are three possible workarounds to sync the controller nodes:
  • After you import the two-node cluster into Panorama, push the configuration from Panorama to the cluster. After the push succeeds, Panorama reports that the controller nodes are in sync.
  • Configure a worker list on the cluster controller:
    set deviceconfig cluster mode controller worker-list
    is the IP address of the worker node you are adding to the cluster.) This creates a three-node cluster. After you import the cluster into Panorama, Panorama reports that the controller nodes are in sync. When you want the cluster to have only two nodes, use a different workaround.
  • Configure service advertisement on the local CLI of the cluster controller and then import the configuration into Panorama. The service advertisement can advertise that DNS is or is not enabled.
    set deviceconfig cluster mode controller service-advertisement dns-service enabled yes
    set deviceconfig cluster mode controller service-advertisement dns-service enabled no
    Both commands result in Panorama reporting that the controller nodes are in sync.
If the PAN-OS web interface and the GlobalProtect portal are enabled on the same IP address, then when a user logs out of the GlobalProtect portal, the administrative user is also logged out from the PAN-OS web interface.
Use the IP address to access the PAN-OS web interface and an FQDN to access the GlobalProtect portal.
When viewing an external dynamic list that requires client authentication and you
Test Source URL
, the firewall fails to indicate whether it can reach the external dynamic list server and returns a URL access error (

When you use a firewall loopback interface as a GlobalProtect gateway interface, traffic is not routed correctly for third-party IPSec clients, such as strongSwan.
Use a physical firewall interface instead of a loopback firewall interface as the GlobalProtect gateway interface for third-party IPSec clients. Alternatively, configure the loopback interface that is used as the GlobalProtect gateway to be in the same zone as the physical ingress interface for third-party IPSec traffic.
The VM-Series firewall on KVM, for all supported Linux distributions, does not support the Broadcom network adapters for PCI pass-through functionality.
Regardless of the
Time Frame
you specify for a scheduled custom report on a Panorama M-Series appliance, the earliest possible start date for the report data is effectively the date when you configured the report (
Manage Custom Reports
). For example, if you configure the report on the 15th of the month and set the
Time Frame
Last 30 Days
, the report that Panorama generates on the 16th will include only data from the 15th onward. This issue applies only to scheduled reports; on-demand reports include all data within the specified
Time Frame
To generate an on-demand report, click
Run Now
when you configure the custom report.
When you perform a factory reset on a Panorama virtual appliance and configure the serial number, logging does not work until you reboot Panorama or execute the
debug software restart process management-server
CLI command.
The following issues apply when configuring a firewall to use a hardware security module (HSM):
  • nCipher nShield Connect
    —The firewall requires at least four minutes to detect that an HSM was disconnected, causing SSL functionality to be unavailable during the delay.
  • SafeNet Network
    —When losing connectivity to either or both HSMs in an HA configuration, the display of information from the
    show high-availability state
    show hsm info
    commands are blocked for 20 seconds.
