4. Ready 

When cluster members have different versions of Check Point Security Gateway, the members with a new version have the ready state and the members with the previous version have the active state.
Before a cluster member becomes active, it sends a message to the rest of the cluster, and then expects to receive confirmations from the other cluster members agreeing that it will become active. In the period of time before it receives the confirmations, the machine is in the ready state.
When cluster members in versions R70 and higher have different number of CPU cores and/or different number of CoreXL instances, the member with higher number of CPU cores and/or higher number of CoreXL instances will stay in Ready state, until the configuration is set identical on all members.
