Each Panorama peer in the HA pair is assigned a
priority value. The priority value of the primary or secondary peer determines which will be eligible for being the main point of administration and log management. The peer set as primary assumes the active state, and the secondary becomes passive. The active peer handles all the configuration changes and pushes them to the managed firewalls; the passive peer cannot make any configuration changes or push configuration to the managed firewalls. However, either peer can be used to run reports or to perform log queries.
