I have one Cisco 6513 Switch Installed with FWSM module. I have another 6513 Switch with FWSM Module. Both hardware are perfectly working. I am trying to configure redundancy between the two switches and FWSM. It is also working perfectly. When I switch off one Firewall or Switch, the standby is taking the role. I have no issues.
1. I have configured Active / Passive in FWSM
2. I have configured HSRP in the Routed SVI of the Router which is the default gateway for FWSM.
3. The design in as below
But I am facing the Time delay during the switch over. When i ping the IP address in the MPLS (ex.10.100.1.5) cloud from Users, when Link to MPLS in Router1 (LINK 5 in diagram) is down, it is taking 10 request timeout to again start ping the IP address.
I have reduced the HSRP time parameters. But it didnot work out.
Kindly guide in solving the problem.
