Converting a firewall connected to the SMC server into a high availability cluster

A standalone firewall connected to the SMC server can be converted into a high availability cluster:

  1. From the SMC server web interface, connect to the web administration interface of the firewall by clicking the icon Firewall interface icon in the list of firewalls in the Monitoring menu.
  2. Refer to the Stormshield Network User Configuration Manual under High availability to add a passive node. In a failover, the passive node will become active and will automatically connect to the SMC server

The icon Mode icon in the Mode column is updated in the list of firewalls on the SMC server web interface. To view details about both nodes of the cluster, edit the cluster in the Firewalls menu and open the System > High availability tab.
