To display the cluster members list, log into an operating cluster and go to System > HA.

The cluster members list displays illustrations of the front panels of the cluster units. You can hover the mouse pointer over each interface to view the interface IP address (if any) link status, and speed. The displays use color coding to indicate the status and configuration of individual cluster unit interfaces:

  • Green indicates data interfaces that are up and connected to data networks
  • Yellow indicates monitored data interfaces that are up and connected to data networks
  • Red indicates connected heartbeat interfaces

The colors of interfaces that are not connected are faded but the colors of heartbeat and monitored interfaces are still visible.

From the cluster members list you can:

  • Select List or All to view HA uptime, sessions, and throughput for each cluster unit.
  • Click and drag to change the order of the cluster units.
  • See the host name of each cluster unit. To change the primary unit host name, go to System > Settings and change the Host Name. To view and change a subordinate unit host name, edit the subordinate unit from the cluster members list.
  • View the status or role of each cluster unit.
  • View and optionally change the HA configuration of the operating cluster.
  • Disconnect a device from the cluster.
