Checking virtual cluster operation

  1. Once again use the diagnose sys ha checksum cluster command and the get system ha status command to check the cluster synchronization status to make sure the primary and backup FortiGates both have the same configuration.

    The HA Status dashboard widget shows the VDOMs in the virtual clusters. You can hover over the VDOM names to see status information for the VDOMs. You can hover over the host names of each FortiGate to verify that they are synchronized and both have the same checksum.

  2. To view more information about the cluster status, click on 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 FortiGate for the root VDOM (so the primary FortiGate processes all root VDOM traffic). The page also shows that Backup is the primary FortiGate for the Engineering VDOM (so the backup FortiGate processes all Engineering VDOM traffic).
