Some general configuration must be performed first in order to enable HA.
- Physically connect the FortiVoice units that will be members of the HA group.
- Enable the HA mode on each member of the group that you want to use and select the individual member to act as a primary or secondary unit.
- Configure the local IP addresses of both the primary and secondary heartbeat.
- Configure a virtual IP address shared between the HA group and then configure the failover behavior. For more information on configuring various failover scenarios, see the “Failover scenario examples” section of the FortiVoice Phone System Administration Guide.
Connect both the primary and secondary heartbeat interfaces.
