Simultaneously pinging the ClusterXL High Availability members and the Cluster VIP address stopped working - only 2 pings out of 3 pings work (to IP address of Active member, to IP address of Standby member, and to Cluster VIP).
Output of "fw ctl get int fw_allow_simultaneous_ping" returns value "1" - i.e., this parameter is enabled (refer to sk26874).
The kernel parameter "fwha_forw_packet_to_not_active=1" was added multiple times to the $FWDIR/boot/modules/fwkern.conf file on the cluster members.
