I have FWSM in 6500. The FWSM has 10 contexts configured.
Can I perform syslog and and backups to a server on a network connected to the Admin context... or do I have to have visibility to my syslog/backup server from all contexts?
The way it is being done now is that the syslog/backup server has visibility to all contexts on the same FWSM. I don't think this is the best way to do it. Based on the documentation, I think this is possible:
1) Can configure the syslog on the admin context, it can then send syslog messages from all contexts to a single server (on a network accessible from the admin context). can adjust the system id as necessary to differentiate between messages from each context.
2) For backups, I can log into the admin, change to each context and save the running to startup and then just save the config from the Admin context.
I don't manage the firewalls, so I can't test this myself. Appreciate any input.
