Why Cannot Easy IP Be Deployed with Hot Standby?
You cannot specify the VRID in Easy IP implementation. In normal cases, the active firewall uses the IP address of its outgoing interface as the public address to set up sessions. After active/standby switchover, the standby firewall also uses the IP address of its outgoing interface as the public address. In this case, the sessions synchronized from the active firewall do not match the IP address of the outgoing interface on the standby firewall. As a result, services are interrupted.
