hi netpros,

customer is running CSS in box2box redundancy and has messed around with the heartbeat link - so both became active.

according to documentation there is only on ha link possible!

is there any other option to get this link redundant?

or should we redesign and use vip/virtual interface redundancy to avoid split brain conditions?

any hints appreciated.

best regards,

Vip/Interface redundancy is definitely a better solution. Faster failover time. No 1 HA link issues ....

So, that would be my recommendation.

Unless the customer is doing FWLB.

In this case, B2B redundancy is a much easier solution.

But no solution to have a backup ha link.
