I'm seeing what I think is a bug, but one of my colleagues thinks is correct so I'm curious what the wider community thinks please?
Given I have a MX device which has two connected WAN interfaces (1 and 2)
and load balancing is disabled to prefer WAN 1
and I have a flow preference configured to prefer Internet traffic up WAN 2
When I look at the /organizations/:organizationId/appliance/uplink/statuses API endpoint
Then I'm seeing WAN1 as 'active' but WAN2 as 'ready'
My customer thinks this is correct as load balancing is disabled, but my reading of this page:
- Active - WAN interface is healthy and is currently being used to send client traffic.
- Ready - WAN interface is not currently being used but is awaiting failover from the Primary uplink that is configured under Security & SD-WAN > Configure > SD-WAN & traffic shaping > Primary uplink. To configure an active-active load-balancing state, refer to our article on Load Balancing.
I think WAN2 should be 'active' as the flow preference is making WAN2 be 'used to send client traffic'
What does everyone else think please?
