What new Panorama™ management server features are in
New Panorama Feature
Increased Device Management Capacity for the Panorama Virtual
PAN-OS 10.2.5 and later releases
To ease the operational burden of managing the configuration of your
deployments, the Panorama virtual appliance installed on
VMware ESXi in Management Only mode now supports management of up to
5,000 Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW).
Panorama Interconnect 2.0
PAN-OS 10.2.4 and later releases
Upgrade to Panorama Interconnect Plugin 2.0 is required to upgrade to
PAN-OS 10.2. You must download the Panorama Interconnect Plugin
2.0.0 prior to install of PAN-OS 10.2.4 to successfully upgrade.
Zero Touch Provisioning 2.0.3
PAN-OS 10.2.4 and
The Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) Plugin 2.0.3 release includes minor
bug and performance fixes.
Panorama administrators can now review and
push their own committed configuration changes to managed firewalls.
This helps improve collaboration across teams, the handling of emergency
changes, and the auditing of those changes. Additionally, for multi-vsys
firewalls running PAN-OS 10.2, shared Panorama configurations are
now pushed to the Panorama Shared context on the firewall, eliminating
replication and reducing the risk of hitting capacity limits for
shared objects such as EDLs and Custom URL categories.
Automatic Content Push for VM-Series
and CN-Series Firewalls
Eliminate the operational overhead required
to regenerate your VM-Series and CN-Series firewall images with
the latest content updates. Enable this feature to automatically
push content updates when onboarding new VM-Series and CN-Series
firewalls to the Panorama management server. When leveraging Auto
Scale, you can maintain existing dynamic content (such as for policy rules
using App-ID) in the image configurations.
Log Collector Health Monitoring on Panorama
PAN-OS 10.2 introduces the ability to monitor health metrics for your
managed Log Collectors from a centralized location. This helps you
assess the operational performance of a Log Collector to easily
identify and resolve any issues as soon as they arise.
