Pulse Secure’s PSA7000 appliance provides link redundancy in both the copper (PSA7000c) and fiber (PSA7000f) appliance models. While these models have four physical interfaces, they are divided into two sets:
In PSA-7000, int0 comprises of physical ports "eth3 eth5" , ext0 comprises of "eth2 eth4" and mgt0 comprises of "eth1". All eth interfaces are physical ports.
- two (2) interfaces for internal
- two (2) interfaces for external
Since administrator has no option to enable or disable "eth1, eth2, eth3, eth4,eth5", their ifAdminStatus remains down or 0 only and similarly ifOperStatus will also show down since it is dependent on ifAdminStatus.
This is working as per design and the customer can ignore the up/down status on these interfaces and only monitor int0, ext0, mgt0 instead of monitoring their eth interfaces.
