How to Reset PAN Firewall to Factory

As I go through setting up new Palo Alto Network’s firewalls I’m going to place a new key notes and tutorials in this post for reference as I need them.

Default Username/Password is: admin/admin

Default IP address for MGT Interface for Physical Appliance:

Note: For VM series the MGT interface is set to DHCP.

From the CLI with known admin user password:

  • Erases all logs
  • Resets all settings, including IP addressing, which causes loss of connectivity
  • Saves a default configuration after the MGT IP address is changed

Without known admin user password:

From the console port type,

  • Choose Reset Factory Default
  • Or load another configuration into running memory
