HA in VWire and path monitoring

L4 Transporter


We have an environment (HA active passive in VWire mode) in which the PA is sitting directly connected to an SRX FW in HA.


What we agreed that both of the PA and the SRX should be:


  • Link up on the passive device
  • Disable failover on link down
  • Failove upon "ping" drop for certain IP



I would like to know what how is the mechanism works in VWire mode (the PA is managed only thought the Mgmt interface that is on out of band network)


On the GUI we should insert the VWire name ,source IP, destination IP.



My main questions are:


  1. Which IP should the source IP be?
  2. In case it is an IP in the "network segment" the VWire cut how the PA handles the ARP issue?
