Adding HA remote IP monitoring to multiple interfaces

Adding HA remote IP monitoring to multiple interfaces

You can enable HA remote IP monitoring on multiple interfaces by adding more interface names to the pingserver-monitor-interface keyword. If your FortiGate configuration includes VLAN interfaces, aggregate interfaces and other interface types, you can add the names of these interfaces to the pingserver- monitor-interface keyword to configure HA remote IP monitoring for these interfaces.

For example, enable remote IP monitoring for interfaces named port2, port20, and vlan_234:

config system ha

set pingserver-monitor-interface port2 port20 vlan_234 set pingserver-failover-threshold 10

set pingserver-flip-timeout 120 end


Then configure health monitors for each of these interfaces. In the following example, default values are accepted for all settings other than the server IP address.


config system link-monitor edit port2

set server next

edit port20

set server next

edit vlan_234

set server end
