HA questions

Not applicable

Hello,

I'm having trouble understanding how Active/Passive HA works in Palo Alto. In other solutions the active device has a virtual address on top of its physical interface address, and when the active device goes down the passive device 'takes over' by sending a garp notifying devices that it is now the virtual address receiver. I can find a floating IP address in Active/Active, but nothing in Active/Passive.

Thanks

Mikand is correct and the configured IPs will function only on the active HA unit.

In your example, either 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.2 will be removed when you issue the 'sync-to-remote'.  If you want both IPs to be active,  you can configured both 192.168.1.1 and 1.2 on the interface and the active unit will respond to them.
