Show master backup

  • Did not see anyother place to post this, not doing a bounty, but this seems like a change request or sugestion.
    I have a clustered pfsense, and was working on the backup, making changes to firewall rules, that were not taking effect, as I thought I was on the Master pfsense.

    My sugestion is to put some kind of indicator that shows what you are working on, as they look the same.

    There is no config indicator saying you're working on a "backup" or "master" since it's also possible to chain multiple things together… a single unit doesn't have a way to show that it's going to be receiving config updates from another.

    The easiest fix for this is to:
    1. Set different hostnames on each so you can identify them that way
    2. Set each box to a different theme, so it's obvious they are different at a glance.
