Azure R81.20 Cloudguard Cluster Deployment - Backend Routing Problem

Hello,

I have deployed an R81.20 cloudguard cluster using the following IAC.

https://github.com/CheckPointSW/CloudGuardIaaS/tree/master/terraform/azure/high-availability-existin...

I have a backend routing issue where whereby

  • I have provisioned a test VM in another VNET to test egress connectivity
  • The VM VNET and FW backend VNETs have been associated with the internal routable 
  • The required routes have been added to the internal routable- default route is 0.0.0.0/0 with next hop IP the backend lb
  • VNET peering has been setup between the VM VNET and the connectivity VNET (VNET FW subnets reside in).
  • Static route to internal subnet has been configured on each gateway i.e. 
    set static-route <Virtual-Network-IP-address/Prefix> nexthop gateway address <eth1-router-IP-address> on
  • Anti-spoofing has been disabled on both eth0 and eth1 interfaces
  • In Smart Console, a test VM object has been created and allowed access in policy, outbound NAT has been configured translating source to frontend eth0 external private IP. 

I can see traffic hitting the active member including the a reply. But the on the VM the ICMP requests are timing out.

Have you set a route in the backend network to the lowest IP address of the VNET on the Check Point FW?

For example
Backend network   10.70.22.64/26
Gateway IP               10.70.22.65             for Azure internal networks.

No. Per the documentation, the 3 required routes are as follows.

default_route 0.0.0.0/0 VirtualAppliance 172.18.0.69 (backend-lb)

vm-01-vnet-local 172.19.0.0/24 VNetLocal

vm-01-vnet-other-subnets 172.18.0.0/26 VirtualAppliance 172.18.0.69 (backend-lb)
