F5 Active-Active in use, contrary to vendor recommendation

What will happen if one of the active members fails?

This is a real life sample alert from indeni

Description:

This device is part of an Active-Active HA configuration without an additional standby device. This is contrary to F5’s recommendations on the matter.

Manual Remediation Steps:

Add a standby member to the HA group.

How does this alert work?

indeni automatically determines when certain devices are part of an HA group. It uses this determination to execute a large set of checks, such as comparing configurations and licenses. One of the checks is to see if all devices in the group are set to Active and if so – alert.
