This blog was originally started to better help me understand the technologies in the CCIE R&S blueprint; after completing the R&S track I have decided to transition the blog into a technology blog.
CCIE #29033

This blog will continue to include questions, troubleshooting scenarios, and references to existing and new technologies but will grow to include a variety of different platforms and technologies. Currently I have created over 185 questions/answers in regards to the CCIE R&S track!! Note: answers are in the comment field or within "Read More" section.

Fortinet - HA Master Selection

Master Selection - High Availability with Fortinet

Master (also known as the Primary) is chosen based on the following

  1. monitored port - (highest number of connected non failed monitored interfaces)
  2. system up time (age) -  (longest up-time)
  3. unit priority - (default 128 - higher priority is selected as Master)
  4. serial number - (highest serial number)
As soon as the FGCP protocol hits the first criteria that meets the requirement of the master selection process the rest of the evaluation process is no longer evaluated and the master node is selected.
