HA status messages
Status messages that you see when HA is configured.
|Primary||Sophos Firewall that's configured as the main Sophos Firewall for the network. If both firewalls are online, this is the Sophos Firewall through which traffic flows. |
The designation is dynamic: When the auxiliary device takes over, the designation changes from primary to auxiliary.
|Auxiliary||Sophos Firewall that's configured as the secondary Sophos Firewall for the network. If both firewalls are online, this is the Sophos Firewall that is the inactive hot spare in active-passive mode. In active-active mode, the auxiliary firewall also processes the traffic.|
|Standalone||The auxiliary device isn’t available. It likely has a fault.|
|Fault||The device has a fault. Reasons can include the monitoring port being down, a firmware update is in progress, the device is rebooting, or another network issue. Note that a fault status doesn’t mean hardware failure.|
