5510 active-standby failover

Unanswered Question

I have two new ASA 5510s, with 7.2(2)10 configured for active/standby failover.

due to ASA interface limitation/availability, I am using only one interface for both LAN-base and stateful failover:

interface Ethernet0/3

speed 100

duplex full


interface Ethernet0/3.2

description LAN Failover Interface

vlan 20


interface Ethernet0/3.3

description STATE Failover Interface

vlan 30

failover is working, but I'm concern that when I enter “show failover” the firewalls don't see each other

any help?

thanks, kevin

First of all you don't need sub-interfaces if you share the Failover/Stateful interface(s). Just use Eth0/0.

Secondly is it possible to post the output of 'show failover? and if possible show run failover.
