The SD-WAN Edge is the VMware data plane component that is deployed at an end user’s branch location. SD-WAN Edge configured in High Availability (HA) mode are mirror images of each other and they show up on the SD-WAN Orchestrator as a single SD-WAN Edge.

There are two options when configuring in HA mode:
  1. HA Option 1: Standard HA
  2. HA Option 2: Enhanced HA
For a description of both options, see High Availability (HA) Options.

This document describes the steps necessary to enable High Availability (HA) and bring up a second SD-WAN Edge as a Standby device to an activated Edge.
