Add a ZTP Firewall to Panorama

Add a ZTP firewall to be managed by the Panorama management server.
Log in to the web interface of the Panorama™ management server as a Superuser, Panorama admin, or as the ZTP installer admin to add a ZTP firewall to Panorama. To add the ZTP firewall, you must enter the firewall serial number and claim key provided by Palo Alto Networks and then register the firewall with the ZTP service. Registering the firewall claims the firewall as an asset in your account in the Customer Support Portal and allows the ZTP service to associate the firewall with the Panorama.
While adding ZTP firewalls to Panorama, do not perform any commits on the ZTP firewall before you verify that the firewall is successfully added to Panorama in Step 4. Performing a local commit on the ZTP firewall disables ZTP functionality and results in the failure to successfully add the firewall to Panorama.
  1. Log in to the Panorama Web Interface using the ZTP installer admin credentials.
  2. Add a ZTP firewall to Panorama.
    1. Select
      Firewall Registration
      and
      Add
      a new ZTP firewall.
    2. Enter the
      Serial Number
      of the ZTP firewall.
    3. Enter the
      Claim Key
      for the ZTP firewall provided by Palo Alto Networks.
      The eight digit numeric claim key is printed on a physical label attached to the back of the ZTP firewall you received from Palo Alto Networks.

      to confirm registering the ZTP firewall.

      Managed Devices
      Summary
      and verify that the ZTP firewall is successfully added as a managed firewall.
      Ensure that the
      To SW Version
      column is configured to the correct PAN-OS version so that the firewall does not upgrade or downgrade unintentionally. ZTP functionality is supported only for PAN-OS 9.1.3 and later releases. Additionally, the PAN-OS version must be the same or an earlier version of the PAN-OS version running on Panorama.

  5. Add the ZTP firewall to device group and template stack.
    You must add the ZTP firewall to a device group and template stack for your firewalls to display as
    Connected
    and to push policy and network configurations.
    1. Log in to the Panorama Web Interface using admin credentials.
    2. Select
      Panorama
      Device Groups
      and assign the firewall to the appropriate device group.
      Add a device group to create and configure a new device group to contain the policy objects and rules for your ZTP firewalls.
    3. Select
      Panorama
      Templates
      and assign the firewall to the appropriate template stack.
      Configure a template stack to create and configure a new template stack to contain the network configuration for your ZTP firewalls.
