Problem:

fgt300d-b (global) # get system ha status
HA Health Status: OK
Model: FortiGate-300D
Mode: HA A-P
Group: 0
Debug: 0
[...]
Configuration Status:
    FGT3HD--------42(updated 5 seconds ago): in-sync
    FGT3HD--------79(updated 2 seconds ago): out-of-sync

Solution:

Connect to the non-master unit:

fgt300d-b # conf global

fgt300d-b (global) # execute ha manage 0

fgt300d-a login:

On the "out of sync" unit, force a synchronization:

fgt300d-a # conf global
fgt300d-a (global) # execute ha synchronize start

On both units, show the vDom checksums:

fgt300d-a (global) # di sys ha checksum show
is_manage_master()=0, is_root_master()=0
debugzone
global: 23 57 94 4a 63 8e 02 de ac c7 5d 83 aa 9e cf 4c
root: 08 c6 69 fd ec 68 b8 f0 9a a7 32 34 d8 fc 2e d0
Back: b2 42 60 d5 b0 5a a6 d2 61 da 0a 28 85 1b f8 09
Edge: 60 c8 6b e8 3e c9 46 0c 89 19 aa 15 92 63 e1 61
all: d3 f7 57 94 02 63 29 5c 36 a6 ff ea 37 87 e5 36

checksum global: 23 57 94 4a 63 8e 02 de ac c7 5d 83 aa 9e cf 4c root: 08 c6 69 fd ec 68 b8 f0 9a a7 32 34 d8 fc 2e d0 Back: b2 42 60 d5 b0 5a a6 d2 61 da 0a 28 85 1b f8 09 Edge: 60 c8 6b e8 3e c9 46 0c 89 19 aa 15 92 63 e1 61 all: d3 f7 57 94 02 63 29 5c 36 a6 ff ea 37 87 e5 36

If the checksums all match between units, you're done.

If not, force each unit to recalculate each checksum:

fgt300d-a (global) # diagnose sys ha checksum recalculate

fgt300d-a (global) # di sys ha checksum show [checksums show as above]

If the checksums all match between units, you're done.

If not: for each section listed (above: global, root, Back, Edge) get a section checksum and compare it to the value from the other unit:

fgt300d-a (global) # di sys ha checksum show Back
[gratuitous output]

...

$ diff Back.? 1c1 < fgt300d-a (global) # di sys ha checksum show Back --- > fgt300d-b (global) # di sys ha checksum show Back 12c12 < system.dhcp.server: 00000000000000000000000000000000 --- > system.dhcp.server: 702dc7bc45da4fc11dbc9b9de2923862

In the example above, the system dhcp server has values set on the B unit but not on the A unit. Either replicate the configuration from B to A, or remove from B.

If you've made any changes, force a checksum recalculation as above, and then check the config status.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
