This depends on how you're doing failover. Two ways that I can think of:
If it's purely application-layer, and your clients will fail over to
connecting to db02 somehow, just be sure and have policy that allows
connections to db02's IP.
- Failover and test this out.
If it's a VIP, High Availability IP, or some other mechanism that
moves connections to the IP from one host to the other, do nothing.
Your firewall should allow new connections to form normally. However,
you may still see some sessions that are established but for which
there is no matching connection on the host. These may time out or
attempt closure after a while.
