RC1, Failover, and Loadbalancer

  • I've got a firewall that fails sometimes, so I bought a second to act as a failover solution while I diagnose it.  (Since I'm running RC1 on newish hardware I don't know whether to blame the hardware or the release.)

    Failover is configured, and when I reboot the primary firewall:

    • Failover to the secondary happens as expected

    • LAN machines are still available

    • DMZ machines are available individually.

    • A load balance pool that points to DMZ machines is not available, even though the backup firewall shows them as online and available.

    Any thoughts as to where I should be looking?


    (edited for clarity.)

  • check if you have a carp on dmz and if the server's gateway on dmz are set for this carp.
