Use Case: Configure Active/Active HA with Route-Based Redundancy

The following Layer 3 topology illustrates two PA-7050 firewalls in an active/active HA environment that use Route-Based Redundancy. The firewalls belong to an OSPF area. When a link or firewall fails, OSPF handles the redundancy by redirecting traffic to the functioning firewall.

  2. Configure OSPF.
    See OSPF.
  3. Define HA failover conditions.
  4. Commit the configuration.
  5. Configure the peer firewall in the same way, except in Step 5, if you selected Device ID 0 for the first firewall, select Device ID 1 for the peer firewall.
