Configure L2 service on Active-Active Mode

L0 Member

I'am using PAN-PA-3220

We want to setup this model with:

1. HA (active-active)

2. Interface configuration using Layer 2 configuration


Is it possible to done it?. as when I try to create Layer 2 configuration. It always pop out error "Layer 2 unable to configure due to HA in active-active mode.

Can help to suggest or any ways to do it?


*ps: customer request to do active-active mode with VLAN configuration

Hi @Hazzuan ,


Active-Active is not possible on a Layer 2 only deployment mode. Active-active HA mode requires the firewalls to have separate routing and forwarding tables, which is not feasible with a Layer-2-only mode.


You will need to create VLAN interfaces or have an L3 deployment in order to use the A/A HA mode.
