Configuration synchronization in A-A HA

Hi All, Read somewhere in fortigate handbook 6.0 that if I want to synchronized configuration between cluster unit in A-A or A-P HA I need to use below command Config sys ha Set standalone-config-syn enable End So my question is that if I want my passive fortigate in A-A or A-P HA to synchronized with Active fortigate unit, so I have use this command on Passive fortigate to synchronized with Active fortigate unit or on Active fortigate so that passive fortigate can synchronized configuration with Active fortigate. Or need to use this command on both cluster unit. Any help.

Please don't hijack other threads! Start you own one. No understanding.

Usually, in 99.9% of all cases, config synchronization is enabled automatically. You have even two-way sync, either from master to slave, or from slave to master.

 

This command is quite new and I still have to figure out what "standalone-sync" means. If it's standalone, it's single. If it's single, it doesn't have a partner to sync with...

Ah, got it.

see Handbook v6.0.6, pg. 427 ff.

You can configure synchronization from one standalone FortiGate to another standalone FortiGate.
So, you can share one primary config with one or multiple other FGTs which are not clustered. For instance, to prepare a mass rollout (:-).

 

This does not affect FGT clusters! So I stand by my statement that in a cluster, config changes are synced immediately.
