I don’t expect the various hardware and software out there to be perfect, really I don’t. However what I do expect is when there is a limitation or problem with a product that the vendor documents it somewhere. It is such a waste of my time to fight with an “issue” for hours on end only to find out that it is a known issue. For example with the Watchguard Core’s. When setting up High Availability mode you have to set HA to run on one of the first 4 ports. If you set it on any of the latter ports it won’t work properly. No reason for this, it just won’t work. While this can be a little annoying it really isn’t a huge deal IF you know about in advance. Given the fact that I couldn’t find documentation on this then hopefully this blog will save you the time that I lost.
