HA1 showing down

L2 Linker

HA1 is showing down, but HA1 Backup and HA2 are showing up.  FWs recently configured by contractor who has left.  Configuration appears correct.  Any suggestions?


Thank you for the clarification.  Here is what I have:


Name: ha1, ID: 5
Link status:
Runtime link speed/duplex/state: unknown/unknown/unknown
Configured link speed/duplex/state: auto/auto/auto

Looks like a layer 1 problem. Maybe the cable is bad or it's connected in the wrong place on one side.

Even if the HA config or IP address info is wrong, it would show up if the physical connection is good.

Ok, I work remotely and I've having trouble getting someone to look at the cabling for me.  I'll keep you posted.  Thank you.

Another question:  

Under Network-Interfaces the link state shows up, but under the Dashboard the HA1 shows down.  They have the same IP - I feel like there is something I am not understanding about his config...

What interface is being used for HA1? The dedicated HA interfaces don't appear in Network-Interfaces.

You can define data plane interfaces for HA use but that's not typically done on models that have the dedicated HA interfaces.
