admin@PA-7050>

State
Description
Empty
The slot is empty and is ready to use.
Up
The card is powered on and has a valid software configuration.
Disabled
(
HA only
) The slot is not enabled.
In a high availability (HA) configuration, the NPC slots stay in a disabled state until you enable the slot. This is by design, so you can install new NPCs without causing a failover. After you insert matching NPCs in both chassis, you then bring up both cards simultaneously. For details, see Install a PA-7000 Series Firewall NPC in a High Availability (HA) Configuration.
HA-Disabled
(
HA only
) After you enable a slot, this status appears until both slots are ready.
This also occurs if the peer does not have a matching card in the same slot number or the card in the peer is not ready.
Stopping
The card is preparing for removal.
Starting
The card is in the process of powering on and the software is initiating.
PowerOff
The card is powered down and ready for removal.
AdminPowerOff
An administrator powered down the slot and it will not be available until you power it back on. If there is a slot that you want ignored in an HA configuration HA, put it in this state.
Failure
The card has failed and needs to be replaced.
Unsupported
The card is not a supported type for this slot.
