Aggregate Interface Failover

Hello,

Is it possible to have two interfaces configured as aggregate interfaces in one AE group in way that if one interface goes down it does not force a failover to the backup firewall? Here's some background...

I have two PAs set up with high availability. I have configured e1/1 and e1/2 as aggregate interfaces joined to the aggregate group ae1. The aggregate group's IP address acts as our external IP address to our ISP. I want to set it up so that if either e1/1 or e1/2 fail, it does not force a failover to our second firewall. I just want the internet connection to remain active on firewall one going through the other port. Is this possible? Our HA configuration is active/passive. Please let me know.

Thanks,

Mark

Hello Mark,

As per your requirement, It is possible to achieve through a monitoring profile on HA configuration. If we set the failover condition to "all" (default is Any) then it will trigger a failover only when both e1/1 and e1/2 will be down. Please find below an example.
