PA 3260 and using non dedicated as HA1 interface

We have 2 PA 3260  across Data Centres.

We tried to use Eth1/13 as HA1 port but under ha1 interfaces it does not show option to choose  eth1/13.

 

IS this by design that HA1 interface to be dedicated?

for now we used management as ha1 interface.

 

is this good to use management interface as ha1?

Did you configure eth1/13 as HA interface prior to selecting it in the HA config?

 

(I normally use the mgmt port as HA1 backup port in addition to either one of the dedicated or a DP interfaces)

Yes i config eth1/13 as HA interface.

Why can't you use the HA1 port even if the firewalls are across DCs?  (I'm guessing you're needing a fiber connection?)  

 

I've got a 5220 pair spreed across 2 DCs that are 800+ miles apart using HA1 in a switched environment w/o issue.

Yes it is a fiber connection connection between our Data centres for HA!
