Loopback IP overlap

I'm deploying Fortimail with 2 VA's in HA config only mode. We do want them behind a loadbalancer. The loadbalancers are in the same subnet for the highest performance.

Subnet on Port 1 is 10.240.240.15/23 and the loadbalancer is on 10.240.240.21/32 When I try to add the loadbalancer IP on the loopback adapter I get the error "IP overlaps with other ports".

Is there a way to add the loopback address in the same subnet?

Hello,

 

You can try the below:

config system settings
     set allow-subnet-overlap enable
 end

This should allow you configure overlapping subnets

For more details you may refer to the below kb:

Thanks, but this article and solution is for the Fortigate. This command cannot be used on Fortimail. (doesn't work at all)
