Checking virtual cluster operation

  1. To check the cluster synchronization status to ensure the primary and backup FortiGates both have the same configuration, use the following CLI commands:
    diagnose sys ha checksum
    get system ha status
  2. The HA Status dashboard widget shows the VDOMs in the virtual clusters. Hover over VDOM names to see their status information. Hover over the host names of each FortiGate to verify that they are synchronized and both have the same checksum.

  3. To view more information about the cluster status, go to the HA Status widget and select Configure Settings in System > HA, or go to System > HA.

    The HA status page shows both FortiGates in the cluster. It also shows that Primary is the primary (master) FortiGate for the root VDOM (so the primary FortiGate processes all root VDOM traffic). The page also shows that Backup is the primary (master) FortiGate for the engineering VDOM (so the backup FortiGate processes all engineering VDOM traffic).
