Feedback on High Availability — Configuring High Availability
Enable Configuration Synchronization (XMLRPC Sync)
- Enter admin for the Remote System Username (other usernames will not work) - It is outdated. A new user can be created on the primary with hasync permission. After config is synced to secondary a newly created user can be used.

- Affected Documentation The pfSense Book added
A few extra notes from an overlapping entry in the internal Redmine:
The book still shows you can only use admin but that is no longer true:
The 'wiki' docs do not say that but only use the admin user as an example:
Importantly nowhere mentions that the user used MUST either be the admin user or have the 'System HA node sync' privilege. Being in the default admins group in not sufficient.
