Deploying two FortiGate-VM instances in an HA configuration in an OpenStack environment

This example shows how to set up FortiGate Clustering Protocol (FGCP) HA with two FortiGate-VM instances in an OpenStack 10 environment. The FortiGate-VMs are connected to a private network (private01) and protect two networks (network-l and network-r). Each network includes a CirrOS instance (cirros-l and cirros-r) for testing.

To support HA heartbeat communication, the OpenStack environment also includes a network named ha-sync configured with the subnet used by the HA heartbeat interfaces (169.254.0.0/24).
