HA physical interface

ISG1000

4 interfaces

 

I am short of a dedicated physical port for HA link. Since i am using all 4 interfaces for data traffic

Would i be able to do a HA link without the use of a physical cross cable?

 

please advise

Re: HA physical interface

No, HA is working on L2, So Physical HA link is mandatory for High Availablity.

 

You need one physical interface atleast to send control messages and sync RTO/configurations.

Re: HA physical interface

Thanks for your reply.

 

Ive read thru NetScreen OS manual, there seem to be a paragragh about HA Virtual Interface, that does not make use of the physical interface. Was wondering if anyone comes across HA Virtual Interface.
