Disable FireCluster

When you disable FireCluster, both cluster members reboot at the same time. We recommend that you plan this for a time when you can have a brief network interruption.

To disable FireCluster:

  1. In WatchGuard System Manager, open the configuration for the cluster master.
  2. Click the Policy Manager icon.
    Or, select Tools > Policy Manager.
  3. Select FireCluster > Configure.
    The FireCluster Cluster Configuration dialog box appears.
  4. Clear the Enable FireCluster check box.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Save the configuration to the Firebox.
    The configuration is saved and both devices in the cluster reboot.
  • The cluster master starts with the same IP addresses that were assigned to the cluster.
  • The cluster backup master starts with the default IP addresses and configuration.

You can remove one member from the cluster and not disable the FireCluster feature. This results in a cluster with only one member, but does not disable FireCluster or cause a network interruption.

For more information, see Remove or Add a Cluster Member.
