I have configured 2 PIX 535 firewalls in failover (Software 8.0) with multicontext configuration. There are 2 context created. It's running fine. However Crypto map and ISAKMP commands couldn't be supported on this. So it became impossible to create VPN. Pls suggest.

That is one of the downsides of running multiple contexts. No VPN capabilities.

Don't use multiple contexts or use some other hardware like a router or fwsm.

Hello Pankaj, currently VPNs,dynamic routing,QoS etc. are not supported in multiple context mode. You have to either use single mode or find another device to terminate the VPNs.

Or find a gun to shoot the ASA coders :).
