Redundant PIX and OSPF

Unanswered Question
Sep 3rd, 2007


We jhave a pair of redundant pix firewalls running 6.3 os.

Last week we failed them over and all appeared well with the IP addresses swapping as expected, but we did have a loner that expected outage. This was approx 3 mins,, this was the time it took OSPF to become active. We we getting messages that the firewall was not able to route the packet during this period. We use a fail-over cable and a LAN connection for the state information.

Has anyone any experienced the same problem. The reason for the reload was a the primary firewall has a memory leak and we only had 20M of memory left.


I have this problem too.

You can

- put some static routes with AD more than ospf's 110.

- decrease failover timers

- decrease OSPF hello timers
