Hi Experts,

I have a Fortigate 200B running in a cluster, one active one standby.
In the past they configured a load balancer with two webserver nodes.
Now there are some problems with webserver sessions .

For troubleshooting I have stopped one node.

Is it possible to stop the loadbalancer and how to configure it ?
When the Fortigate is the loadbalancer, but it is in active/standby modus, is it correct, that just the active unit handles the traffic ? Or the standby unit is also doing some stuff ?

I hope to get some news.

Below is the link to configure the load balancing in fortigate.

* Only active unit will be handling the loadbalancing sessions.
* If you want to remove the load balancing configuration ,you have to access the servers with separate Virtual ips for each server behind the firewall.
* Check whether  the persistence method is correct if you are having load balancing issue.

Below is the link for monitoring and troubleshooting.
