Gen7 TZ with wireless built in: is H/A a configurable feature?

Hello Community, I saw on the list price that all the TZ gen7 firewall without built in wifi has a dedicated SKU for the H/A unit while those with wireless built-in haven't. Can anyone explain me why? By the way, can two gen7 TZ units with wirless built in configured in H/A even if the built in WiFi is up&running? Are there any constrains to be considered?

Thanks.

    Hi Enzino78, HA on the TZ's with Built in wireless isn't supported (it will not let you enable it if the Wifi is enabled), the main reason for this is because if you were to enable it both radios would be active on the Active and the Idle unit, and if your clients connected to the Idle appliance they would not get a DHCP or access to the Internet.

    you can technically purchase a secondary appliance and use in HA if the Built-in wireless is disabled, but seems a bit pointless you would be better purchasing the non Wireless models and then using SonicWave AP's.
