to export the entire log database to an SCP server and import it to another firewall. Because the log database is too large for an export or import to be practical on the following platforms, they do not support these options: PA-7000 Series firewalls (all PAN-OS releases), Panorama virtual appliance running Panorama 6.0 or later releases, and Panorama M-Series appliances (all Panorama releases).

Choose the mode based on what your FTP server supports and on your network requirements.
Test SCP server connection. Before establishing a connection, the firewall must accept the host key for the SCP server.
If you use a Panorama template to configure the log export schedule, you must perform this step after committing the template configuration to the firewalls. After the template commit, log in to each firewall, open the log export schedule, and click
