Redundant Failover link on ASA5500 Series?

Unanswered Question
Sep 19th, 2007

Cisco recommends connecting failover link over L2 switch in thier document.

But if L2 switch fails, both ASA's failover I/F will down.

I wonder if there is any way to get redundancy for failover link, like etherchannel.

Or should I prepare two L2 switches to avoid both ASA's I/F down?

Any hints appriciated.

I have this problem too.

Even if both of the failover interfaces go down it wont affect the traffic flow. Also if the switch is being monitored this will get detected and can be solved easily. If you still want redundant failover links, using seperate switches will be good idea.
