Interface Status in Suspended state

L1 Bithead

I have my production firewalls in HA active/passive mode. My question is if I have suspended the passive firewall, what would be the interface status, would it be down or showing up ? I do understand it will not be forwarding traffic but what would you see in the GUI when checking the interface state.

Thank you for post @bambox


The status of interface depends on HA setting under: Device > High Availability > General > Active/Passive Settings. If it is set to "shutdown', then the interface will be down. If it is set to "auto", the interface will shown as up, but will be suspended.


Kind Regards
