I have a pair of ASA 5540s running 8.0(4) 32.
A particular interface on the secondary node is shown as Normal (Waiting). I cannot ping the primary node via this interface or vice versa. Each node has the partner node's arp entry for this same interface. Both nodes can ping local network devices on this interface's network. The interface itself on the secondary node is shown as Up, 100mb, full duplex. I do see an occassional Interface Reset on this particular interface.
This interface pair are on the same vlan and portfast is enabled.
Thank you in advance for your insight.
