we have 2x6509 with ace and fwsm each. ace is acting as a bridge between fwsm and servers. fwsm is the gateway for all severs.
fwsm is having 2 context (fwsm A and fwsm B) with fwsm context A active of 6509A and other fwsm context B on 6509B. similarly ace has 2 context. ace context A is active on 6509A and context B is active on 6509B.we had an issue where fwsm context A on 6509A was failed over.hence fwsm context A became active on 6509 B. but ACE context A on 6509 A didnt detect it. all traffic got stopped. i had to manually failover fwsm context A from 6509 B to 6509 A to make it work,
there is a object track feature in ACE, not sure how wil it work here. can this be used then how? is there anything else can eb done to avoid anything manually. how can we make the failover to work. in this case fwsm failover so ace can detect it and if ace fails fwsm should detect it
