ASA 5520 active/standby failover

Unanswered Question
Nov 14th, 2007


we have 2 ASA 5520 (Ver. 8.0(2)) uin active/standby failover. each asa has also an IDS module (ASA-SSM-10) in promiscuous mode.

we have an failover almost every day/night .

with "sh failover history" we get this output:

"Service card in other unit has failed"

has anyone an idea what causes the failover?

thanks a lot


I have this problem too.

Do a 'show module' in the ASAs. See if any of them are shutdown and check your logs. We had one that was not fully seated and caused some problems.

HTH and please rate.
