Can't Access HA Management Primary or Secondary Interfaces

I have two nsa3650's. Each one has 10gb interfaces from the outside going to x20 and 10gb interfaces on x21 using as the IP and going to two switches on the inside with as their IP.

I am using x14 as my HA link between both firewalls and have a cat5 cable plugged into each one.

I have set up the HA management interface on x21 using and as the primary and secondary addresses, have checked 'enable physical link monitoring', 'allow management on primary and secondary ipv4 address', and 'logical probe ipv4 address' using which is on my switch.

According to Sonicwall documentation since I am only using 10gb interfaces I also need to connect the x0 interfaces with a cat5 cable and configure the management with an unused network. I am using as the network interface and and 3 as the management interfaces.

With all this is done I can't ping either the primary or secondary management interfaces or 3 from the switch.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Hi @pinaldps

    Please check the Ping is enabled on management interfaces.

    Are the switches in a stack? If they aren't and using the same IP address you will run into connectivity issues.
