ASA Management interface for Failover

Unanswered Question
Jun 22nd, 2009

We have been using the management0/0 interface for the failover process with success. I have a co-worker who claims this to not be a good idea. Has anyone heard of any definitive information for or against this practice?

I have this problem too.

Hi Daniel,

In my experience, it is perfectly fine to use the management interface for failover communication. Just be sure to disable management-only mode with the 'no management-only' command on that interface.

Hope that helps.

There is no real difference between the management and normal ethernet interfaces.
