HA and Device Priority

L4 Transporter

HA active device

Upon initial configuration the device with the lowest priority, value close to zero, becomes the active unit (default priority is 100). If two devices have the same priority value, the device with the lowest MAC address of the HA1 link becomes the active unit.

Can someone give me real world example of when both FWs would have same priority, and why would they be configured as such.



Both PA become active active as HA1 and HA1 backup link was down.


This would still happen with different prioities though as well wouldn't it?

yes it will still happen with different priorities.


makes sense.  so basically if you lose your ha1 or backup ha1 your stuck. 

yes that's how it is
