Deployment cluster or HA

I have two issues:

1. I wonder if the 1200R Rugged Appliances can deploy HA:

- pairs of 1200R?

- pair of 1200R with 1570R?

2. A company has SG5100. They want to deploy HA. But SG5100 end of sale. So which devices can the SG5100 deploy HA with?

Plz help?

Only clusters with precisely the same hardware and software are supported.
That means you can cluster two 1200Rs together (at same software level), two 5100s together, but not a 1200R and a 1570R (different hardware and software versions), or a 5100 and something else.
In the case of the 5100, I recommend a trade-in.

Here is the truth...YES, you CAN cluster different models, but its NOT supported and personally, its pointless doing it, because if you ever have a problem, which most likely you will, TAC won't help you and you will end up having to do all the troubleshooting yourself, so as phonebook said, just stick with same model and software, which is indeed supported.

Pretty sure you won't be able to cluster a 1200R with a 1570 given how SMB clustering works.
May be able to do it with a 5100 and "something else" under the right set of circumstances, but as noted, not supported.
