Solution:
There is no option on ScreenOS firewalls to view  the Cluster-ID or Cluster-List, which are associated with any route received from RR. However, the Cluster-List is considered during route selection. ScreenOS firewalls will append the Cluster-ID/Cluster-List in the following cases:

  • The route is received from RR client and sent to a non-client.

  • The route is received from Another RR and sent to its own RR client.

However, the route will not contain any Cluster-ID or Cluster-List in the following cases:

  • The route is received from a non RR client and sent to the RR client.

  • The route is received from one RR client and sent to another RR client.
