In order for a static route to sync from the Primary firewall to the Backup firewall, you must enable Sync VR configure to the peer


If a route is created, other than gateway tracking and local routes, in the Custom VR using Web GUI it will not be synced to the standby if the option ‘Sync VR configure to the NSRP peer’ is not enabled.


To get a static route to sync from the Primary firewall to the Backup firewall, you must enable Sync VR configure to the NSRP peer.


The following command will be propagated to the backup device:

set vr<name of customer VR>
set nsrp-config-sync


  1. Go to Network Routing > Virtual Router > Edit
  2. Check the option Sync VR configure to the NSRP peer
