Is this possible with the ASA

Unanswered Question
Jul 6th, 2009


I'm going to have a second ASA 5550 at a DR site. Is it going to be possible to set this up where when I make a change on my main firewall, have that change replicated to the other ASA? I know I would be able to do this with a active/standby failover, but they're not going to be on the same subnet so I'm thinking it's not possible.



I have this problem too.

A cool feature, but not yet available. You could write some PERL scripts to look for the syslog message, grab the running config and then dump it to the other FW. Not pretty, but should be do-able if you're good with PERL or some other language.

Hope that helps.

Thanks all. I'll look into the Perl script. I may be able to do it with an expect script also. :) This is a tricky situation because I don't want the ASA to failover if our local ASA dies, and I'm only wanting a way to replicate changes.
