Disable monitoring SSM module - ASA

Unanswered Question

If I restart the AIP-SSM module, how can I avoid the ASA failover to take place.

Is it possible to disable monitoring of SSM module.

I need to upgrade the AIP-SSM image on ASA which requires restart of the module, and I do not want the ASA failover to occur but bypass the analysis engine during restart.

As far as I know, there is no way to disable monitoring of the AIP within the failover process.

The best way I have found of doing an upgrade is to simply temporarily disable failover with the 'no failover' command. Once the upgrade is complete and the AIP is back online, you can re-enable failover with the 'failover' command.

Hope that helps.
