Disconnect Sync Link

Jump to solution

Hi,

We have to move the sync link on our clustered gateways (R80.20) because we are decommissioning the switches it runs through.

What steps need to be taken before disconnecting the sync link?  Do we have to run clusterXL_admin down on the secondary gateway before we disconnect anything?

I don't want to disconnect the link and both gateways think they're active.

Thanks

Alex

The sync connection is only used for state table synchronization, disconnecting it will not cause a split brain.  CCP is emanated out all interfaces presenting a cluster IP, and that is how the cluster members coordinate with each other.
