SonicOS/X 7 High Availability

High Availability Status

The DEVICE | High Availability > Status page displays the current status of the High Availability pair, including state of primary and secondary units, mode and link configuration, and licenses.

At the top of the page, you can see which unit you are logged into, Primary or Secondary, and whether the unit is in the Active or Standby state.

In the event that the Primary unit has a failure, you can view the status by accessing the management interface of the Secondary unit at the Primary unit virtual LAN IP address or the Secondary unit unique LAN IP address. When the Primary unit restarts after a failure, it is accessible using the unique IP address created on the DEVICE | High Availability > Monitoring page. If preempt mode is enabled, the Primary unit immediately takes over as the Active firewall and the Secondary unit returns to Standby status.
