Configuring ClusterXL in Bridge Mode - Active / Standby with Two Switches


The Active/Standby Bridge Mode is the preferred mode in topologies that support it.

In the Active/Standby Bridge Mode, ClusterClosed Two or more Security Gateways that work together in a redundant configuration - High Availability, or Load Sharing. Members work in High Availability mode.

For more information, see the R81.10 ClusterXL Administration Guide.


Best Practice - If you configure Bridge Mode Active / Standby, then disable STP, RSTP, and MSTP on the adjacent switches. See the applicable documentation for your switches.
