Hi Samuel,

this is fine. This has to do with the "passive link state" option in your HA configuration. It is probably set to shut down which is normal.

Take a look at the admin guide in reference to "passive link state":

auto—Causes the link status to reflect physical  connectivity, but discards all packets received. This option is supported in  Layer 3 mode. The auto option is desirable, if it is feasible for your  network.
shutdown—Forces the interface link to the down state.  This is the default option, which ensures that loops are not created in the  network.
