How to sync Captive Portal Redirect Host in A/A - Setup ?

L0 Member

Hi *,

I have problems to sync Captive Portal Settings in a Active/Active HA-Setup.

I configure the CP on the active primary host as follows :

     Enable Captive Portal - checked

     Server Certificate - cp-cert

     Authenticaation Profile - company-radius

     Redirect Host -  cp.mydomain.com

     Client certificate Profile - none

     Mode - Redirect

     Session Cookie - enable

     Roaming - enable

All other with default settings.

After the commit both units declare the config as synchonized. If I check the configuration on the secondary active unit the Captive Portal Settings are :

     Enable Captive Portal - checked

     Server Certificate - cp-cert

     Authenticaation Profile - company-radius

     Redirect Host -  None

     Client certificate Profile - none

     Mode - Redirect

     Session Cookie - enable

     Roaming - enable

The Result is that I need to configure the Redirect Host manually. After the commit on secondary active the redirect works fine but the configuration is out of sync.

I tried everything like sync vice versa, over cli and gui but alway the same result  - frustrating

Any Ideas  ?

Regards

Marcel

Hi...Did you make the IP address for cp.mydomain.com a floating IP?  The floating IP will failover during an outage.  Thanks.

Yes - cp.mydomain.com is a floating IP.

The Goal is if the primary active device fails the redirect points to the functional unit. The move of the Floating IP works fine but the redirect -to cp.mydomain.com fails, because the redirect host in the configuration is not sync'd with the result that the browser points to http://(null):6082/.... and not to cp.mydomain.com:6082/...  

I would recommend opening a Support case on this.  Thanks.
