first steps with HA: where to put VLANs?
Set up my second HA-cluster today ... looks great.
For the project I work on I will have to provide VLANs on the LAN side and I wonder how to set that up on a CARP-cluster.
I could only assign VLANs to the LAN interface on the primary, is that OK?
Do I have to do that manually on both nodes in a way?
Any pointers? the pfsense book didn't tell me much here.
thanks in advance ..

It's just like physical interfaces- each pfsense box needs a unique IP on each vlan.
e.g- vlan 10 192.168.10.2 primary 192.168.10.3 secondary 192.168.10.1 carp
vlan 20 192.168.20.2 primary 192.168.20.3 secondary 192.168.20.1 carp
On the switch side, both boxes would need to be connected to a vlan trunk carrying all the tagged vlans.
hm, I think I understand ;-) will try asap on my test boxes -> thanks!
New category, yo.
@sgw As you were guessing: create the VLAN(s) on both nodes of the cluster, setup a CARP VIP for that VLAN and just treat it like another physical "LAN" interface in any regard, then you're good to go.
