which device will be active when sglondon_1 is back up and running? Why?

In the following cluster configuration; if you reboot sglondon_1 which device will be active when
sglondon_1 is back up and running? Why?

sglondon_1 because it the first configured object with the lowest IP.

sglondon_2 because sglondon_1 has highest IP.

sglondon_1, because it is up again, sglondon_2 took over during reboot.

sglondon_2 because it has highest priority.

    The graphic should show the cluster members listing in the cluster object, the first listed is the highest priority member. The listing must go:


    Also – the setting to maintain highest priority member must be configured. Other possibilities are to maintain current member.

      I passed during the last week. in my exam, i got this question. there was no Image or anything like “following configuration” it was exactly like above.

      I guess this is not needed as three of the answers do not make sense anyways. sort of “this is not how it works in General”

      i think the question can also be read as “how is the next-active member Chosen if the currently-active member fails”

      i think priority is correct. not sure if there is any lowest/highest IP check in the decision

    Love, Brad

    Answer is D

    The Security Gateway with the highest available priority becomes the new master. The range of valid values 1 to 254. The default setting is 100.

    Note – If the effective priority for the current master and backup are the same, the gateway with the highest IP address becomes the master.

    Upon the recovery of a member with a higher priority, the role of the active member may or may not be switched back to that member, depending on the user configuration i-e
    Maintain Current Active Security Gateway
    Switch to Higher Priority Security Gateway

    I passed today with 93/100 in Bucharest/Romania (total of 89 questions).

    There were 7-8 new questions that are not on this site, some of them from two new topics I did not see here, Threat Prevention (2 questions) and IPS(2 questions).

    For all the questions I had to choose one correct answer out of 4 (four) options. NO command writing questions.

    All the best for everybody!

    Wrote 156-315.77 last Friday, and passed with 95%!

    There were 89 questions of my 156-315.77 exam, many Fill in the Blank questions.

    Around 10-15 new questions (IPS, Threat Prevention FW Monitor, VPN Tunnel Sharing, GAiA…etc.).

    Be careful of questions on Command and Syntax, GAiA Command.

    I used the PassLeader 156-315.77 dumps ( (752q VCE and PDF dumps) for preparing for exam, all NEW questions were from it, the most valid 156-315.77 dumps!

    PassLeader has published part of its 156-315.77 dumps on Google Drive for free here:

    Good Luck!!!
