FortiMail high availability modes
FortiMail units can be configured to operate in high availability (HA) clusters. FortiMail HA has two modes: active-passive and config-only.
- Active-passive HA: Two FortiMail units operate as an HA cluster, synchronizing both configuration and data, providing failover protection.
- Config-only HA: Up to 25 FortiMail units use an identical configuration, but do not synchronize data, and therefore operate as independent FortiMail units.
Fortinet recommends HA to achieve uninterrupted service.
