    Default Migrate external Interface to bond interface on production environment

    I need to migrate the external interface of an active/standby cluster (R77.30) in a production environment to a bonded interface.
    What would be the recommended steps to keep downtime at a minimum?

    Default Re: Migrate external Interface to bond interface on production environment

    Presumption made here: You don't connect to the Firewall via the External Interface.

    Connect to the Standby Firewall
    Remove Config for External Interface
    Create New Bond for External Interface
    Configure Bonded Interface
    Update any Proxy ARP to reflect change in Interface
    Update Dashboard Topology to reflect the change in the Interface name on the Standby Firewall

    Push Policy to Cluster

    Perform Failover

    Repeat on the Second Unit
