With software updates, you can either download and install them separately on each firewall, or download them on one peer and sync the update to the other peer. You must install the update on each peer (DeviceSoftware).
GlobalProtect Agent Package
With GlobalProtect app updates, you can either download and install them separately on each firewall, or download them to one peer and sync the update to the other peer. You must activate separately on each peer (DeviceGlobalProtect Client).
With content updates, you can either download and install them separately on each firewall, or download them on one peer and sync the update to the other peer. You must install the update on each peer (DeviceDynamic Updates).
The master key must be identical on each firewall in the HA pair, but you must manually enter it on each firewall (DeviceMaster Key and Diagnostics).
Before changing the master key, you must disable config sync on both peers (DeviceHigh AvailabilityGeneralSetup and clear the Enable Config Sync check box) and then re-enable it after you change the keys.
Reports, logs, and Dashboard Settings
Log data, reports, and Dashboard data and settings (column display, widgets) are not synced between peers. Report configuration settings, however, are synced.
