High Availability Commit Failure on PA-5220

I am having trouble trying to get a PA-5220 to commit, when attempting to configure HA1, not on the 

ha1-a default interface, but rather on aux-1.  The same applies when configuring HA1-Backup to use aux-2.

 

I can commit with this config, under high-availabilty:

 

set deviceconfig high-availability group 1 peer-ip 192.168.0.2
set deviceconfig high-availability group 1 peer-ip-backup 192.168.2.2
set deviceconfig high-availability group 1 mode active-passive passive-link-state auto
set deviceconfig high-availability group 1 election-option device-priority 90
set deviceconfig high-availability group 1 election-option timers recommended
set deviceconfig high-availability group 1 state-synchronization enabled yes
set deviceconfig high-availability group 1 state-synchronization transport ip
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1 port aux-1
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1 ip-address 192.168.0.1
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1 netmask 255.255.255.0
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1-backup port aux-2
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1-backup ip-address 192.168.2.1
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1-backup netmask 255.255.255.0
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha2 ip-address 192.168.1.1
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha2 netmask 255.255.255.0
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha2 port ethernet1/19
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha2-backup port ethernet1/2
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha2-backup ip-address 192.168.3.1
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha2-backup netmask 255.255.255.0
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha3
set deviceconfig high-availability enabled no

But if I change the last line:

 

set deviceconfig high-availability enabled yes

 

I get the follow error when I try to commit:

 

Commit job 19 is in progress. Use Ctrl+C to return to command prompt
...
High-availability ha1 IP information will use interface IP information if port is 'aux-1'. Please remove IP information from ha1(Module: ha_agent)
Error: HA1 Port is not configured
Error: ha configuration error
(Module: device)
Commit failed

If I drop back and use ha1-a for ha1, and ha1-b for ha1-backup, it commits just fine.

 

Any ideas as to why this is not working?

 

Thanks.

 

Clarke

Re: High Availability Commit Failure on PA-5220

@ClarkeMorledge ,

So when you utilize the aux1 or aux2 ports for HA you'll actually want to leave out the following commands: 

set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1 ip-address 192.168.0.1
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1 netmask 255.255.255.0
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1-backup ip-address 192.168.2.1
set deviceconfig high-availability interface ha1-backup netmask 255.255.255.0

You don't want to configure this information in the actual HA settings. You'll want to configure it on the actual AUX interfaces itself. 

set deviceconfig system aux-1 ip-address 192.168.0.1
set deviceconfig system aux-1 netmask 255.255.255.0
set deviceconfig system aux-2 ip-address 192.168.2.1
set deviceconfig system aux-2 ip-address 255.255.255.0

Re: High Availability Commit Failure on PA-5220

Thanks, BPry.  That does the trick.

 

Just wanted to note a typo. The last configuration line should be this, instead of what you had:

 

set deviceconfig system aux-2 netmask 255.255.255.0

 

Worked like a champ.
