Physical connectivity validation on passive device

Hello,

We use vsys on our PaloAlto cluster. During a new vsys deployment, I would like to validate that the passive device's physical connectivity to a switch is working.

But I don't wish to launch a failover just for this, because it could impact the whole cluster.

Is there any way to test physical or logical interfaces connectivity without any failover ?

If you're running PAN-OS 4.1 or prior, you can set the HA passive link state to auto for L3 deployment,  This will allow for the Ethernet links to be up if connected to a switch. 

Starting in PAN-OS 5.0, you can set the HA passive link state to auto for L3 and vwire modes.

Thanks.
