I have experience with ASAs but I have never configured multiple contexts before and I am wondering if someone could explain or point me to a document that can explain the behavior of certain features of the firewall, like IPS and the global policy. Is everything configured in one context completely independent from another? For example if I turn of SIP inspection on one context, will it affect the another context? Thanks I look forward to a response.

Well the context are completely separate firewall so the policy in a context will not affect the policy of another context.


This is a simple example.

NOTE:  Some features are not supported in multiple context, including VPN and dynamic routing protocols.
