All Email Security Gateway models 400 and above, all firmware versions.

The following Email Security Gateway configurations are considered unique and will not sync to match other Email Security Gateways in a cluster:
  • IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway (on the Basic > IP Configuration page)
  • Primary DNS Server and Secondary DNS Server (on the Basic > IP Configuration page)
  • Serial number (this will never change)
  • Hostname (on the Basic > IP Configuration page)
  • Any advanced IP configuration (models 600 and above, on the Advanced > Advanced IP Configuration page) 
  • Administrator password 
  • Guest password 
  • Time Zone (on the Basic > Administration page)
  • Cluster Host Name (on the Advanced > Clustering page)
  • Cluster Shared Secret, though this must be the same for the cluster to work properly (on the Advanced > Clustering page)

  • SMTP Welcome Banner (on the Advanced > Email Protocol page)
  • Web Interface HTTP Port (on the Basic > Administration page)

  • Any other secure administration configuration, including saved certificates (on the Advanced > Secure Administration page)
  • Quarantine Host (on the Basic > Quarantine page) 
  • All SSL/TLS information, including saved certificates (on the Advanced > SMTP/TLS page)
  • Whether to only display local messages in the message log (Only view local messages on the Basic > Message Log > Preferences page)
