The "tmsh show cm failover-status" command shows failover connection status "Error" on one device, but manual failover is working properly.


The tmsh show cm failover-status command indicates an error, even though the devices are in sync and failover communication is working.


-- Two or more devices configured with high availability (HA) and are in sync. -- The management IP address is changed on one of the devices --show cm failover-status" on peer. You will see "show cm failover-status" returns "Error" status.


tmsh restart sys service sod
