Fortigate 60E High Availablity Set Up

question #1: While in System - HA, I don't see Ports 1- 7 as choices to use for the heartbeat monitor.  Is there something I need to change before I can select those here? - image attached.
 
I've got two Fortigate60e's and each have the same configuration, same firmware.
Ports 6 and 7 are going to ports 6 & 7 on each FortiGate to be the Heartbeats. 
 
 
Question #2: Also is this set up ok for HA?
 
internet -> router -> WAN1 port of Primary_Fortigate60e -> Port 1 to internal Switch
on the Backup_FortiGate60e WAN1 is going into a port on the internal switch
 
 
or do I have to have it as internet -> router -> external switch, and that splits off to each of the WAN1 for each fortigate?

Hi,
Ans 1 ) You may use any port other than switch ports for HA and link both ports with straight cable and define inside for health check
 
Ans 2) Yes, the connectivity will be like this internet -> router -> external switch -> Both fgt60e WAN1 interface
 
Thanks
Rohit

Since this 60E only has ports 1-7, DMZ, WAN1 and WAN2 I ended up removing ports 6 and 7 from here (so they are no longer switch ports):
Network->Interfaces->Hardware Switch [internal]
 
After doing that they became available as heartbeat choices in: System->HA


 Port Monitor  Heartbeat Interface  Enable  Priority(0-512)
dmz
internal6
internal7
npu0_vlink0  
npu0_vlink1  
wan1
wan2
 
Thanks for the help!
