I thought the passive interfaces were in a down state and displayed red in the PA console but that is only when the device is in a suspended or disconnected state. I was over thinking things and didn't check the basics! I had put the switch ports into admin down whilst we moved ISPs and forgot to enable them again. Thank you! A very embarrassed Scott.

Hi, I am some what confused and reaching out for a little help. We have a pair of 3020s in Active/Passive mode with two interfaces, DMZ (Ethernet1/1) & Public (Ethernet1/3). HA is configured to use dedicated HA Ports and all indicators on the dashboard are Matched and UP. When I manually suspend the Active device, the Passive device becomes active and the indicators on the dashboard show that the Passive is now the primary (and CLI confirms) but the interfaces remain down. The suspended device interfaces go to a down state. As soon as I enable the suspended device the priority kicks in and the device becomes the Primary again and the interfaces become UP. Does anyone have an idea? ___________________________________________________________ HA CONFIG: Setup Group ID: 33 Mode: active-passive Active/Passive Settings Passive Link State: shutdown (Active) | Auto (Passive) Monitor Fail Hold Down Time (min): 1 Election Settings: Device Priority: 10 (Active) | 110 (Passive) Preemptive: Yes Heartbeat Backup: Yes HA Timer Settings: Recommended Control Link (HA1): dedicated-ha1 Control Link (HA1 Backup): management DataLink (HA2): dedicated-ha2 | Transport: Ethernet DataLink (HA2 Backup): none ___________________________________________________________ Thank you, Scott
