Re: user Id issue with active- active HA

If this worked in PanOS 5 and not after the upgrade, I would open a ticket and get a bug id assigned to the issue.  You might also check the release notes for PanOS versions after 6.0.1 to see if it is already listed as a resolved issue in future releases.

Does it actually affect operations during failover since the connection works when the secondary becomes active?

Re: user Id issue with active- active HA

Hello Satish

this might be the answer to this issue

https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/docs/DOC-3755

Issue

On the Active:Secondary unit of an Active/Active High Availability (HA) deployment, the User-ID Agents show as "red", indicating they are not connected.

Resolution

The Active:Secondary will always show as red unless it becomes the Active:Primary. This is intentional, and is designed to both alleviate load from the User-ID Agent and to ensure user IDs are never out of sync. The user-ip mappings are synced from the Active:Primary firewall so that both firewalls are up to date.


thank you

Victor.

No bugs in PAN OS 6.0.9, problem with server and infrastructure.
