Complete Content Update When Panorama HA Peer is Down

Complete dynamic updates when a Panorama™ high availability (HA) peer fails during deployment.
When deploying content updates to managed devices when Panorama™ is in a high availability (HA) configuration, Panorama balances the content update jobs between the HA peers to decrease the load on each Panorama. In the event that an HA peer becomes unreachable during the content update, the content update jobs fail for the managed devices to which the down HA peer would normally push the content updates. This occurs for both scheduled and manual content updates. To complete the content update, you must manually push the content update to those managed devices.
  1. Log in to the Panorama CLI and disable load balancing for content updates:
    admin>
    set dlsrvr distribute no
  2. Select
    Panorama
    Device Deployment
    Dynamic Updates
    and
    Install
    the dynamic update.
  3. Select the managed devices that failed content update and click
    OK
    .
