An HA Active-Passive (A-P) cluster can be set up using the GUI or CLI.
This example uses the following network topology:
- Make all the necessary connections as shown in the topology diagram.
- Log into one of the FortiGates.
- Go to System > HA and set the following options:
128 or higher
ha1 and ha2
Except for the device priority, these settings must be the same on all FortiGates in the cluster.
- Leave the remaining settings as their default values. They can be changed after the cluster is in operation.
