I am working on a cluster in A/P and want to separate the management by using OOB HA reserved management interfaces.
This is done perfectly and working, but when reading fortinet's documentation
, it's mentioned that this dedicated interface uses a separated routing table and it's not synchronized whithin the cluster, which is great for my usecase, but here is the question :
Why it works only when I put these interfaces in the VRF=0 (global VRF) and not working when I put them in another VRF ?
It doesn't work neither I set the same VRF ID nor a different one for each interface of each ha unit.
The goal is to have two (one by ha unit) "ha reserved management interface" with two different IPs (one for each unit) while using these interfaces in a different VRF from the global one.
VRF 0 = All Production interfaces
VRF 1 = "HA Reserved management" interfaces.
I think it's very interesting to understand how it works, because it's not well documented.
Thanks for your help.
