Sync Redundancy

The use of more than one physical synchronization interface (1st sync, 2nd sync, 3rd sync) for synchronization redundancy is not supported. For synchronization redundancy, you can use bond interfaces.

Requirements and Limitations:

Important - See Supported Topologies for Synchronization Network.

To configure bond interfaces for Sync High Availability:

  1. Configure a bond interface on each Cluster Member with unused subordinate interfaces. See Configuring a Bond Interface in High Availability Mode.

  2. Connect with SmartConsoleClosed Check Point GUI application used to manage a Check Point environment - configure Security Policies, configure devices, monitor products and events, install updates, and so on. to the Management ServerClosed Check Point Single-Domain Security Management Server or a Multi-Domain Security Management Server..

  3. From the left navigation panel, click Gateways & Servers.

  4. Open the cluster object.

  5. From the left tree, click Network Management.

  6. At the top, click Get Interfaces > Get Interfaces With Topology.

  7. Select the applicable interface and click Edit.

  8. In the General section, in the Network Type field, select Sync.

  9. Click OK.

  10. Install the Access Control Policy on this cluster object.

  11. On each Cluster Member, make sure that the Sync interfaces are in the bond.

    Examine the cluster interfaces in one of these ways:
