HA Configuration on Cisco FTD 2110 using Ether Channel

Hi,

I am looking for assistance to configure my pair of FTDs devices ( 2100 ) in HA using Ether Channel.

I have already added my both FTDs in FMC, I have configured Ether Channels on both FTDs via Device Managament but when i try to add/configure HA for both FTDs then i am unable to see/select Etherchannel from the interface option.

attached are images for the same.

Hello, I am experiencing this problem too. In addition, I am getting an alert message saying "Interface Portchannel is not receiving any packets". Did you find the solution?

 

Thanks

Yes.

Please create the port-channel without any logical name or zone, add the physical interfaces that you want to bundle in it and after that you would be able to use port-channel in the HA.

When you created your Etherchannel did you assign physical interfaces to it?

I was trying this in my lab yesterday and I had some problems too.
Not sure, but looks like I had to use "channel-group 1 mode active" on the catalyst switch, couldn't get it to work with "auto".
And in this document it states all options except "auto".

Yes. You need to assign the IP for your port-channel. You need to provide the primary device IP as well as the secondary device IP during the configuration.
