Issue/Introduction

How to Monitor Device (Fortigate 3000), configured as a cluster MASTER and SLAVE sharing the same IP.
- MASTER went down and the SLAVE came up with the same IP, Spectrum did not pickup that the device was down.

Cause

That is possible if each Fortigate device has its own unique IP address in addition to sharing the virtual.

Also check to see if Fortigate has a mib attribute to specify if it is the master or the slave.

Environment

Release : 10.x

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER

Resolution

From Spectrum we do not support it however as part of solution " you can create IMT watch to detect a change and alarm if there is a change "
