HA traffic through Cisco Switch

L1 Bithead

Hi Team ,
Can we route HA traffic between two 3260 firewalls through cisco switch using L2 vlan.

 My requirement is to run firewalls in HA and devices will be in different buildings. Buildings are connected with dark fiber. As PAN dedicated HA ports are ethernet i have to use another converter or switch to make them communicate in HA ports.

 i did l2 vlan on 9500 switch but HA1 never comes up.

Can we do like this?

I refer you to my posts in this thread.  https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/General-Topics/PA-3260-and-using-non-dedicated-as-HA1-interface...


Are you trying to use a different pot for HA-1 because you need fiber?  HA-1 has to be used on the dedicated port.

I am good , i see one typo error for peer ip.

thanks for all help
