Ensure the firewall is upgraded to the PAN-OS that was selected at the start of the Day 1 configuration process:
can review the preferred maintenance release versions for each major version on Support PAN-OS Software Release Guidance
Activate subscription for Threat Prevention
Updated application and antivirus content
These steps are required so the recommended features included in the configuration have been activated on the device prior to importing.
NOTE: The Palo Alto Networks provided External Dynamic Lists, for example, are loaded once the device is properly licensed and the first content updates have been installed.
