Restore Express Mode

Restore express mode on a 5G-ready, next-generation firewall that has a K2-designated SKU if you changed from express mode to secure mode.
If you take any of the following actions on a firewall that has a K2-designated SKU and was in express mode, the firewall changes to secure mode:
  • You perform a Factory Reset.
  • You downgrade to a PAN-OS release earlier than 9.0.
  • You follow the Return Material Authorization (RMA) procedure for a solid-state drive (SSD) and install a new, imaged SSD.
If you change the firewall to secure mode by one of those actions, you can either purchase a secure mode upgrade or restore express mode.
  • Restore express mode on a firewall that has a K2-designated SKU.
