checkpoint cluster - prevent a failback

Hi, we are having a checkpoint cluster with two members. Because the primary member has a problem and URL filtering doesn't work we stop it(cpstop) and failover to second member. The problem is that if we restart the primary member it gets the primary role and failback automatically. Is it possible to prevent this failback to primary member and keep staying on secondary.

In a High Availability configuration, when the failed Gateway in a cluster recovers, the recovery method depends on the configured cluster setting. The options are:

-    Maintain Current Active Gateway means that if one machine passes on control to a lower priority machine, control will be returned to the higher priority machine only if the lower priority machine fails. This mode is recommended if all members are equally capable of processing traffic, in order to minimize the number of failover events.
-    Switch to Higher Priority Gateway means that if the lower priority machine has control and the higher priority machine is restored, then control will be returned to the higher priority machine. This mode is recommended if one member is better equipped for handling connections, so it will be the default gateway.

To give you more detailed instructions, I need platform and version.

Which CheckPoint platform are you using and what version?

Without that information I can only suggest to switch roles (active/standby) between gateways, but for more details how, I need version and platform.
