Failover IP

Users are able to configure a cluster level fail-over IP, which will be set only on Master node. This fail-over IP can only be set on current Master node through the CLI. It should be in the same subnet of the port's local IP. Clients, such as FortiGates, should point to the failover IP in order to use the HA functionality. When a fail-over occurs, failover IP will be applied on new Master node.

The Master node and Primary Slave node local IP will be kept locally during failover.

Example:

Here is an example to set a fail-over IP for port1.
