HA ports up when connected but HA NOT enabled?

L4 Transporter

Do the HA ports come up even if HA isn't enabled? 

 

I have a production 3220 I am trying to add a new 3220 to and before I enable HA I wanted to make sure the HA ports were up and working before I flip the switch.  The HA ports are showing down and the onsite contact said they are connected directly to each other and the chances that both have bad ethernet cables are slim to none.  Using straight through cables and not crossover.  

 

ha1-a: Control link 192.168.162.1/192.168.162.2

ha1-b: HA1 Backup 192.168.162.5/192.168.162.6

ethernet1/6: Data link <<<< only ports showing up 192.168.162.9/192.168.162.10

Hi @drewdown ,

 

With HA dedicated ports you will still need to configure HA settings (Device->High Availability).
