How was the failover performed?

Could you also share some additional information such as the Major Version and Jumbo used with this cluster?

Hey @Duminda_SAT,


I'm currently troubleshooting the same issue with a route-based VPN we have set up. When we failover to the standby member, we lose the tunnel. Forcing a reset on the remote peer resolves the issue. We're running R81 T69 on ClusterXL HA setup.


I'll keep you posted on any progress in case I find anything of any use to you.

Anyone have any updates? 

We had similar issues after an upgrade to R81.10 T66.. Some time later (our IKE timer is set to 24 hours) about 15 hours, our AWS route based VTI & BGP tunnel with AWS went down for about 15 min, came back on its on and has been solid sense.

Hi @Will_H,


I'm still troubleshooting the issue. I disabled vpn acceleration for this particular peer and the past 3 failovers I performed have been successful. I will need our 3rd party support provider to engage TAC now it's looking like disabling acceleration 'fixes' something.


Do you experience issues with VPN tunnels after failover, too?
