ASA Failover without Standby addresses

Unanswered Question
Apr 15th, 2008

We have 2 ASA firewalls in Routed mode and Active/Standby failover.

If you do not configure Standby IP addresses for the interfaces is Normal (waiting) an expected behaviour?

This host: Primary - Active

Interface outside (217.112.81.130): Normal (Waiting)

Interface inside (10.102.1.1): Normal (Waiting)

Interface mgm (192.168.5.1): Normal (Waiting)

Other host: Secondary - Standby Ready

Interface outside (0.0.0.0): Normal (Waiting)

Interface inside (0.0.0.0): Normal (Waiting)

Interface mgm (0.0.0.0): Normal (Waiting)

I cannot find any definitive answers on the Cisco sites for this.

Help.

I have this problem too.

sorry. failover DOES occur when an interface is disconnected or fails even without the standby addresses!

is this also normal? i can see no documentation where standby addresses have not been set

i'm still not 100% clear on this
