I have an active passive configuration which seems to be working and has failed over successfuly in the past (possibly a year ago). According to the PA docs I read the heart beat is a ping that runs every 1000ms. I assume since the heartbeat backup is down on both that if the active firewall were to break right now ther would be no failover correct?
where I got my info...
No you should be OK because the backup link is optional, you can go to device/high availability/control link HA1 backup and remove it if not using it.
