How to Recover HA Pair Member from the Suspended State

Printer Friendly Page


When running in High Availability (HA) modes, a member of the HA pair can be placed into the suspend state by an administrator to perform maintenance. This means the device no longer participates in high-availability communications.



To make the suspended device available for the High Availability pair again, issue the following CLI command:

> request high-availability state functional

Thank You....this worked...i couldnt copy and paste into CLI, but typing in the command manually worked fine.....

It's worth mentioning that a firewall will not remain in a suspended state post reboot.
