Pfsense HA setup Issue

  • HI,
    I have two pfsense servers 1 master and one backup. I have enbale high availability sync for this setup By following this link.
    In the normal way everything is working fine, when I make changes in one machine everything is reciprocated in the other machine too. But I am facing an issue when the backup machine goes down. The changes made in the Primary machine while the backup machine is down is not getting reflected in the Backup machine when it comes online (unless we make a new change).
    Is this an expected feature or is it a bug or is it something wrong with my setup ?

    If the backup is down while changes are made you might need to sync those changes manually.

    This should eventually happen organically but you can trigger it in Status > Filter Reload

  • Will that sync all the changes or just the Firewall changes ?

    All changes that are synced.
