I have two cat6500 with FWSM in each running two security contexts (routed mode) in Active/Active failover mode.
I was recently trying to add an interface for management porpuses in one of these contexts. That Vlan is already in use in the other context (sharing interfaces). While trying to allocate this vlan interface in the security context the following was displayed:
Context2(config-ctx)# allocate-interface VlanXX
ERROR: Interface VlanXX cannot be allocated to context. Interface is allocated to another context in a different failover group.
The contexts are in different failover groups due to the Active/Active operation mode.
Does anybody knows if it is possible to share an inteface between contexts in that failover mode?
Is it only possible using active/standby mode?
Haven't found any thing regarding this issue in the documentation.
