OS version mismatch across cluster members-paloaltonetworks-panos

Vendor: paloaltonetworks

OS: panos

Description:
Indeni will identify when two devices are part of a cluster and alert if the OS installed is different.

Remediation Steps:
Install the correct versions of software on each device.

How does this work?
This script uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the software version installed on the device. indeni then compares the result to the same script run on other members of the same cluster.

Why is this important?
Two or more devices which operate as part of a single cluster must be running the same version of software.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
Manual tracking by an administrator is usually the only method for knowing when two devices are not running the same version of software.

comments:
    uptime-milliseconds:
        why: |
            When a monitoring system loses connectivity to a device, it may be difficult for it to determine whether the device restarted, or is simply unreachable. To deal with that, the uptime is tracked. The uptime of a device resetting is a clear indicator of a device restart.
        how: |
            This alert uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current uptime (the equivalent of running "show system info" in the CLI).

    software-eos-date:
        why: |
            Ensuring the software being used is always within the vendor's list of supported versions is critical. Otherwise, during a critical issue, the vendor may decline to provide technical support. Palo Alto Networks posts the list of supported software on their website ( https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/services/support/end-of-life-announcements/end-of-life-summary ). indeni tracks that list and updates this script to match.
        how: |
            This script uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current software version (the equivalent of running "show system info" in CLI) and based on the software version and the Palo Alto Networks provided information at https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/services/support/end-of-life-announcements/end-of-life-summary the correct end of support date is used.

    hardware-eos-date:
        why: |
            Ensuring the hardware being used is always within the vendor's list of supported models is critical. Otherwise, during a critical issue, the vendor may decline to provide technical support ( https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/services/support/end-of-life-announcements/hardware-end-of-life-dates ). indeni tracks that list and updates this script to match.
        how: |
            This script uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current hardware model (the equivalent of running "show system info" in CLI) and based on the model and the Palo Alto Networks provided information at https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/services/support/end-of-life-announcements/hardware-end-of-life-dates the correct end of support date is used.

    current-datetime:
        why: |
            The clock of a Palo Alto Networks firewall should always be accurate, as inaccuracies may result in issues with some features, as well as causing a mess in log analysis. Normally, administrators are encouraged to use NTP to keep the clock in sync (and indeni has a script for verifying NTP is working). If NTP is not used, one should still verify that the clock is set correctly.
        how: |
            This script uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current date and time (the equivalent of running "show system info" in CLI). indeni then compares the result to its own clock to find possible discrepancies.

    panw-panos-panorama-cert-expr:
        why: |
            On April 3rd, 2017, Palo Alto Networks notified all customers that an upgrade to Panorama may be necessary to ensure uninterrupted communications between the Panorama device and the firewalls. Knowing which Panorama installations are affected is important.
