Test Panorama HA Failover

To test that your HA configuration works properly, trigger a manual failover and verify that the peer transitions states successfully.
  1. Log in to the active Panorama peer.
    You can verify the state of the Panorama server in the bottom right corner of the web interface.
  2. Suspend the active Panorama peer.
    Select
    Panorama
    High Availability
    , and then click the
    Suspend local Panorama
    link in the Operational Commands section.
  3. Verify that the passive Panorama peer has taken over as active.
    On the Panorama
    Dashboard
    ,
    High Availability
    widget, verify that the state of the
    Local
    passive server is
    active
    and the state of the
    Peer
    is
    suspended
    .
  4. Restore the suspended peer to a functional state. Wait for a couple minutes, and then verify that preemption has occurred, if preemptive is enabled.
    On the Panorama you previously suspended:
    1. Select
      Panorama
      High Availability
      and, in the Operational Commands section, click
      Make local Panorama functional
      .
    2. In the
      High Availability
      widget on the
      Dashboard
      , confirm that this (Local) Panorama has taken over as the active peer and that the other peer is now in a passive state.
