Panorama™ requires a direct internet connection
for scheduling Supported
Updates on firewalls, Log Collectors, and WildFire® appliances
and appliance clusters. Otherwise, you can perform only on-demand
updates. (To schedule Antivirus, WildFire, or BrightCloud URL updates
for Log Collectors, the Log Collectors must be running Panorama
7.0.3 or a later release.) Each firewall, Log Collector, or WildFire
appliance or appliance cluster receiving an update generates a log
to indicate that the installation succeeded (a Config log) or failed
(a System log). To schedule updates on the Panorama management server,
Updates for Panorama with an Internet Connection.
Panorama can download only one update at a time for
updates of the same type so if you schedule multiple updates of
the same type to download during the same time interval, only the
first download will succeed. To ensure that multiple updates of
the same type succeed, stagger the updates.
If your firewalls
connect directly to the Palo Alto Networks® Update Server, you can also
use Panorama templates (
) to push content update schedules to
the firewalls. If you want to delay the installation of updates
for a period after they are released, you must deploy schedules
using templates. In rare instances, a content update includes errors;
specifying a delay increases the likelihood that Palo Alto Networks
will identify and remove such an update from the Update Server before
your firewalls install it.
Perform the following steps
for each update type you want to schedule.
(to identify the
schedule), the update
, and the update frequency
). The frequency options depend
on the update
PAN-OS® uses the Panorama timezone for update scheduling.
