5510 Active\Standy Config

Unanswered Question
Aug 13th, 2009

Hi,


When you configure the second ASA should it have a different hostname, or just different IP addresses. I currently have the failover working but if it does failover the secondary will keep the primary hostname when reverting back.


Also if i set an interface to not be monitored for failover do i need to set a secondary IP address for the failover device?


Thanks for the help.

You don't have to but it can get very confusing if you want to connect to the standby firewall for any reason. Personally i always use a different hostname.

Not to my knowledge no although again i tend to assign IP's to all interfaces for both the active and failover firewalls.
