I have 3 locations, and 3 HA pairs of Applicances. They all seem to be functioning without flaw, but My WUG server reports that the passive node HA as being dropped because it does not receive a ping response. I have pinged out all my ports of al my appliances of all my locations. It is starting to appear that there may be a reason why the Passive node HA port does not repond to ping. Is this true? and why?

Do you have the exact message you are seeing that indicates the node is being "dropped"?
Which IP address are you pinging? The IP on the HA interface, or the IP on the MGMT interface?
Also, from where are you pinging the the IP (from the primary system, or from another system ...)?

this is by design.
The HA IP of an HA Passive node has ARP disabled by default while the node is Passive.
The unit will not reply to ping while in Passive mode.
#482: Unable to ping HA IP of Passivenode
