I would like to have confirmation. I need to connect my Palo Alto cluster firewall (active/passive) to a Cisco stack (with 2 members).
If I want a fully redundancy, I need to create, on a each firewall, an aggregate with 2 interfaces and each interface is connected on a port on each Cisco member ? Are you agree with my schema bellow ?
this connection design is functional. Cisco switches in stack act like a single switch, so on switch side it is cross stack ether channel and Palo Alto Firewall will see its AE as if it is connected to a single switch.
I'm not sure to understand. It's not necessary to have one physical connection from active FW to each Cisco member to keep the communication up even if the Cisco member where the phiscal cable is connected is down ? Even in this case, the communication between firewall and equipments connected on the stack will continue to be OK ?
