Step 4: Summary and finalizing the cluster

If a cluster is being created

After having viewed the summary of your configurations, click on Finish. The following message will appear:

This firewall is ready to run in high availability. You may now configure another firewall to add it to the cluster.

Now that your cluster has been created, a new screen will appear when you attempt to access this module.

If a cluster exists

After having viewed the summary of your configurations, click on Finish. The following message will appear:

This firewall has to be rebooted in order to add a firewall to the cluster. Join the cluster?

To confirm the configuration, this firewall will join the cluster and synchronize the initial configuration. It will then restart in order to apply the configuration. To access this cluster, you need to connect to the active firewall.

NOTE

This step may take a long time on entry-level models. Do not unplug the firewall.
