Howto track a Public IP outside to failover in case of lose of connection ?

L0 Member


I have a cluster of PaloAlto 3050, I want to monitor a Public IP (by example and in case of the PaloAlto lose the connection I want to failover to the second PaloAlto.

I already monitor the Interface, but if the Interface is UP, but the after the Gateway the link is DOWN I lose the Internet Connectivity but I didn't failover to the second PaloAlto.

That the reason why I try to monitor and Public IP outside.

Can somone help me to do that please ?

Thank you

Hi Chris,

You can configure path monitoring by giving specific source and destination (Device -> High Availability -> Link and Path Monitoring ). Once the end destination becomes unavailable (public IP in this case), it will trigger a failover. HTH.

Hi Ssharma,

sorry I try but didn't work on my Palo, it's under "Path Group" on the Menu "Link and Path Monitoring" ?

Thank you for help
