Usage Guidelines

The HA features work across Layer-3 networks, so there is no need for a direct Layer-2 connection between in a high-availability group When the AP first connects to its active , the active provides the IP address of a standby , and the AP attempts to establish a tunnel to the standby to the standby . If an AP fails to connect to the first standby , the active will select a new standby for that AP, and the AP will attempt to connect to that standby .

An AP will failover to its backup if it fails to contact its active through regular heartbeats and keepaliveSignal sent at periodic intervals from one device to another to verify that the link between the two devices is working. If no reply is received, data will be sent by a different path until the link is restored. A keepalive can also be used to indicate that the connection should be preserved so that the receiving device does not consider it timed out and drop it. messages, or if the user manually triggers a failover using the WebUI or CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions..
