Primary FortiGate-6000 recovery

If a primary FortiGate-6000 recovers after a device, FPC, or link failure, it will operate as a subordinate unit. If override is enabled; however, when the FortiGate-6000 recovers, the cluster will renegotiate and the FortiGate-6000 with the highest device priority becomes the primary.
