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.
