Fortigate Clustering

Fortigate Clustering-

Before you set up a cluster
1- All the FortiGates have the same hardware version and the same hardware configuration.
2- All the FortiGates have the same firmware build.
3- All the FortiGates are set to the same operating mode (NAT or Transparent).
4- All the FortiGates are operating in single VDOM mode.
5- If the FortiGates are operating in multiple VDOM mode, they all have the same VDOM configuration.

Note- If the FortiGates in the cluster have different licenses,
the cluster will formed, but it will operate at the lowest licensing level.

get system status- To check current HA mode

Current HA mode: a-p, master
