Adding devices in HA clusters

You can add managed FortiGates in a high availability (HA) cluster in active-passive (AP) mode to SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA.

Note

Before you use this method to add an HA cluster to SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA, you must add the devices in the HA cluster to FortiManager.

Ensure that you have created profiles for devices in the HA cluster before you add the cluster to SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA. The profile defines the interface settings, and the HA Monitor and Heartbeat Interface settings in the profile should match the same settings in FortiManager.

After you add the cluster to SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA, you cannot change the cluster name or cluster members.

Tooltip

If the HA cluster is in a VM environment, ensure that you enable Promiscuous mode and Mac address changes in the vswitch.

To add devices in HA clusters:
  1. Ensure you have created profiles for devices in HA clusters. See Creating profiles for HA devices.
  2. Perform a factory reset on the FortiGates in the HA cluster.
  3. Add the managed devices to SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA. See Adding devices.
