High Availability

Captive Portal includes support for High Availability (HA). The Captive Portal configurations (such as enablement, authenticated clients, and redirect URLs) are replicated to standby or other members.

If the feature is enabled and a failover occurs, clients in the process of onboarding are still redirected to Captive Portal, and authenticated clients continue to have the same access to the network.

Clients that are in the process of authenticating via MAC or 802.1X authentication will not be replicated to the standby. Replication of client data is only done when MAC or 802.1X authentication has resulted in a successful authentication.
