Quick Start — Set Up a FireCluster

You can configure two Fireboxes of the same model as a FireCluster. There are two FireCluster configuration options: active/passive and active/active. To add redundancy, configure an active/passive cluster. To add both redundancy and load sharing, configure an active/active cluster.

This topic summarizes how to plan and configure a FireCluster. If you are not familiar with FireCluster, we recommend you read these topics as an introduction before you begin.

If the Fireboxes you want to include in a cluster have modular interfaces or a model upgrade, see About FireCluster with Modular Interfaces.

Use these steps to plan and configure your FireCluster.
