Applies To: Locally-managed Fireboxes
FireCluster is the high availability (HA) solution for WatchGuard Fireboxes. In WatchGuard Cloud, you can add a locally-managed FireCluster, initiate system actions, and view log messages.
Add or Remove a FireCluster
You can also Remove a FireCluster from WatchGuard Cloud.
Manage a FireCluster
You can initiate these system actions in WatchGuard Cloud:
- Upgrade Fireware OS for a FireCluster in WatchGuard Cloud
- Reboot a cluster member in WatchGuard Cloud
- Fail over a FireCluster in WatchGuard Cloud
To initiate FireCluster system actions in WatchGuard Cloud, cluster members must run Fireware v12.7.1 or higher (or v12.5.8 or higher for T10, T15, T30, T35, T50, M200 and M300 Fireboxes). To upgrade a cluster from lower Fireware versions, you must use Policy Manager or Fireware Web UI. After the upgrade, you can upgrade, reboot, and fail over the cluster in WatchGuard Cloud. For information about cluster upgrades in Policy Manager and Fireware Web UI, see Upgrade Fireware OS for a FireCluster.
