Hello Experts,

If there is any experts on Palo Alto Firewall here, can you please let me know if its possible to prevent the license page from appearing each time I log into the Palo Alto Firewall, see image.

I am practising using the firewall, but it has become quite impossible trying to learn because of the page continually appearing each time I login,

Things is that that screen appears because you are out of the licence trial, if you are using it for training purposes, what you should do is:

1.- deploy the Palo Alto VM
2.- do a snapshot
3.- use the Palo Alto for training and start the trial
4.- when you are out of licence, revert the snapshot and start the trial again.

Otherwise, apply for another trial, or deploy the VM again every 30 days.

You can also practice with backup and restore of Palo Alto policies, that way you can recover what you have done on previous VM deployments.

Hi Carlos,

I will definitely try the snapshot suggestion.

Unfortunately, when the trial expires it's not possible to re-install with the same license - I would have to apply for another 30 day license.
