OSPF on ClusterXL

Jump to solution


Would an R80.40 GAIA ClusterXL cluster failover if the active cluster member lost connectivity to its OSPF neighbors? For example, each cluster member has an interface connected to a layer 2 VPLS WAN and is exchanging OSPF information with many peers at remote sites.

But then the active cluster member loses connectivity to the rest of the WAN network [the local interface stays up, but somewhere further down the line a fibre breaks so the active cluster member can no longer communicate with its peers and OSPF routes are lost].

Would this scenario cause the routeD daemon to go into "problem" state and thus failover the cluster, or not? If not, does Check Point have an equivalent of Cisco's IP route reachability monitoring that would allow the cluster to failover if a route to a remote network is lost?
