As an ISP, we are installing 2 MX-450 Firewalls in HA to connect various managed WiFi networks. These mostly consist of outdoor WiFi installations for RV parks where there's not a convenient place on-site to host the router. In this scenario, we are taking a 1G ethernet handoff with associated VLANs for the customer's network and trunking them through our network to the customer premise, connect at the end through our Calix, ring protected access gear. My current concern is that if just LAN3 drops on the Active MX, we would not see the Passive MX transition to Active, either in whole or just for the VLANs on LAN3. Does anyone have an understanding of the expected behavior if only 1 Interface or subset of VLAN drops? If I need to add more description to the diagram, please advise.
