Uncommitted changes on firewalls and the Panorama™ management server
persist in the event of an unplanned restart.
In the event of an unforeseen restart
of your firewall or Panorama™ management server, PAN-OS now preserves
all uncommitted configuration changes locally until a commit executes
successfully. An unforeseen restart can be of the PAN-OS device
itself or of a PAN-OS management process related to configuration management.
This helps eliminate the need to recreate configuration changes
when an unforeseen restart occurs. By default, firewalls and Panorama
maintain any uncommitted configuration changes on upgrade to PAN-OS
10.1.0 or later release and does not require you to configure or
enable anything to leverage this functionality.
For firewalls or Panorama in a high availability
(HA) configuration, the uncommitted configuration changes do not
automatically sync across the HA peers in the event of an unforeseen
restart. To sync uncommitted configuration changes to the firewall
or Panorama HA peer, enter the following command:
request high availabilty sync-to-remote candidate-config
All uncommitted configuration changes on the firewall or Panorama
are fully removed when you revert the running configuration. If
you revert specific device group and template configuration on Panorama,
only the uncommitted changes associated with the selected device
groups and templates are removed.
