HA Configuration on PA-3220 - HA1 is UP but HA1 Backup is Down

L1 Bithead


I have both PA-3220 HA1-A and HA1-B links connected back to back to each other with a previously verified cable but only HA1 is coming up greeen while HA1 Backup is showing down. The HA1-B interface LEDs on both PA-3220 show green.


Any feedback or suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Same problem on a PA-3250 cluster just after upgrading to 9.1.5. Additional reboot needed just to bring the HA1-b Up again.

Same issue on a pair of 3320s. Rebooted the passive firewall, but no change, still red.



We are running PA 3260 in Active passive PAN OS 9.1.5 and 8.1.9.

No issues so far.




For me - it was also necessary to repeat these steps on the passive node

Try configuring gateway in ha port configuration, pointing one firewall to other.
