HA with Multi Wan PPOE and Bridge



  • We have a two wan/Multi Vlan pfsense setup with one being ppoe and the other a spoofed mac bridge. This is running on a server in a 2016 Hyper-V cluster.
    It would be good to introduce some form of HA but I am not sure how this would work with the bridged Wans. From what I have read it would be possible to put the PPOE on the xecondary on dial on demand but I can see no solution for the bridged modem with the spoofed mac address. If it wasnt on a set of lagged ports serving a whole server it might have been possible to set the switch spanning tree.
    Is there any other alternative?
    Can PFSense run under a Hyper-V Cluster?
    We have tried the modems in normal NAT mode but they are just too flakey when the site gets busy and the no of states climb.
    thanks in advance

    HA needs static addresses, not PPPoE, DHCP, etc.

    The nodes also need identical interfaces on them.
