I am unclear about the behavior of the Failover Monitor. What condition has be met that a gateway is seen as not available:
– Do all three failover IPs have to be down on the gateway ?
Yes, that is why are 3 and not 1, to make sure that if one of them is down ZS will not consider the connection as dead.
– If a failover IP is down on all gateways – does ZS ignore it then ?
It doesn’t really matter, if the other Failover IP addresses are up and reply at the test, the module considers the interface as ok.
– If all three IPs are down on all gateways – will ZS close all gateways or will it ignore the situation ?
thanks for any help, Mark
Not sure about that, most likely it will consider the gateways as down.
