The FortiGate-7000 platform supports the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), allowing you to configure VRRP HA between FortiGate-7000 devices. You can also add a FortiGate-7000 to a VRRP group with other VRRP routers.
Configure VRRP on the FortiGate-7000 by creating a VRRP group and adding one or more front panel interfaces to the group.
During normal operation, the primary FortiGate-7000 sends outgoing VRRP routing advertisements. Both the primary and secondary FortiGate-7000s listen for incoming VRRP advertisements from other routers in the VRRP group. If the primary FortiGate-7000 fails, the new primary FortiGate-7000 takes over the role of both sending and receiving VRRP advertisements, maintaining the FortiGate-7000 within the VRRP group.
