I need help configuring HA between a single Check Point 12K firewall (77.20) and two Cisco Nexus 3K switches (latest rev) in Primary/Secondary mode. There is a vpc between the two switches. The goal is to have a connection from each Nexus switch going to a port channel bond on the Check Point firewall (2 ports).
I can handle the Check Point side, I just need to know the correct way to set the Nexus switches up so that if one connection is down (as in the Nexus switch fails) traffic to/from the CP FW fails over automatically to the other Nexus switch. If I need to have 2 ports from each Nexus going to 4 total ports on the CP that is also a good solution.
In top of the points, the correct solution will also get a $25.00 Starbucks (or the coffee of your choice) gift card. I need this answer by Tuesday 7/14 so I am very motivated!
Note: These switches are all copper ports except for the interconnects between them.
