I have a question regarding "mac address" command under "failover group"
If I am using 4 contexts (Context-A, Context-B, Context-C, Context-D)
and each context has 4 subinterfaces assigned out of which "outside interface is shared by all contexts"
What will be impact of the following commands
failover group 1
mac address Ethernet0 0000.1111.2222 0000.1111.2223
failover group 2
mac address Ethernet0 0000.2222.3333 0000.2222.3334
(Context-A & context-B are in FT Group 1 & remaining contexts are in FT Group 2)
I understand that "mac address auto" command will take care of the shared outside interface by automatically
assigning unique MAC addresses to the shared interfaces in the contexts.
My question is about the non-shared interface. What Mac addresses will get assigned to these interfaces
with the commands I mentioned above.
Q1. Will the MAC address "0000.1111.2222" configured under "FT group 1" will get assigned to "all the
interfaces" allocated to all the contexts assigned to "FT group 1". ?
Q2. What is the significance of standby mac address in this command? Will these addresses be switched
during a failover
I would appreciate if someone can show me the "CLI outputs" on ASAs to make things clear.
Thanks in Advance
