Hello, I have 2 Fortigate 101E with fortiOS 5.4.6, I try to do a HA cluster with both but can't manage to synch the configuration between the master and the slave. I tried to recalculate the checksum quite a few times on both devices but it still isn't synchronizing.
For HA, you don't need to sync the HA members manually. If the cluster is forming at all, all files and status should sync automatically after some time.
The hardware needs to be identical for HA; that is, same P/N, same BIOS version and running the same FortiOS version. You can check that easily with 'get sys stat'. For instance, a FG-101E will not cluster with a FG-100E as the hardware disk is not present on one.
Does the HA cluster form at all, and you just see that something has not yet been sync'ed? Or is the cluster incomplete (get sys ha stats, GUI, virtual MACs etc.)?
I've tried a few more things right now, I've also check that the cluster is formed. For what I've seen so far the cluster is created and is working, but there is no replication between the two devices.
I've attached the cluster image from the master GUI.
here is the result of the ha status from the master :
Cluster Uptime: 0 days 00:04:09
Master selected using:
<2018/04/13 14:14:04> FG101E4Q17003852 is selected as the master because it has the largest value of override priority.
<2018/04/13 14:14:03> FG101E4Q17003852 is selected as the master because it's the only member in the cluster.
Please disable all HA port monitoring until the cluster has formed and is fully synchronized. I see that not all monitored ports are in state 'link up' on the slave unit. If this is commonly so, do not monitor them.
