To support the upcoming Prisma Access release 1.7, Palo Alto Networks will perform the following infrastructure and dataplane upgrades during the following dates and times:

Prisma Access Infrastructure Upgrade - Completed

Prisma Access Dataplane Upgrade - From August 28, 2020 at 13:00 UTC to August 31, 2020 12:00 UTC.

Palo Alto Networks makes every effort to perform the upgrades at a time that is minimally disruptive to your organization. Our goal is to minimize the impact to network traffic, but in some cases there may be a brief interruption.

What you need to do before the upgrade:

Retrieve the active and reserved addresses used for Prisma Access deployments and add them to your allow lists.

After the infrastructure upgrade, Prisma Access may change the active IP addresses to reserved IP addresses and vice versa, and you must add the reserved IP addresses to your allowed lists before Prisma Access performs the upgrade to minimize disruption to your users during this upgrade.

(Optional) Upgrade your Panorama to 9.1, if you want to take advantage of new PAN-OS 9.1 features available in this release.

Panorama 9.0 will be supported until November 20, 2020, but you will not be able to use PAN-OS 9.1 features with Prisma Access if the Panorama that manages Prisma Access is running a version of 9.0. Panorama 10.0 is supported by Prisma Access at this time.

The tentative date for the release of Cloud Services plugin 1.7 is September 8, 2020. After the plugin is released, you will have until September 21, 2020 to upgrade your existing plugin.

Prisma Access reserves the following time windows for each date to upgrade the dataplane for the following regions:
