hi halijenn / experts
1) A firewall is configured in active-standby mode and i want to configure the same in active-active failover .Hence wanted to know if we can restore the configs present in the active -standby mode (which will get lost due to the change in the multiple context mode) in the active-active without any effort (or least effort) . I know that when we switch to multiple context mode , original running configuration will be saved as old_running.cfg and also that all new network configuration needs to be done in individual context of the active-active ; however customer says that it is a pain and this will require lot of effort . If not whole config , is there a way to restore some amount of configuration from A/S to the A/A ?
2) In the multiple xontext mode is it possible that we have the Outside interface shared among two contexts (though the outside IP Addresses belonging to the 2 contexts will be obviously different) and those outside IP Addresses point to same default gateway ?? I know that we can have the interface shared among 2 contexts ; however will we able to point to the same gateway ?
For eg : An organiation have Admin and Finance context , hence both are assigned individual context however the way they access the internet is via same ISP .
3) Is it possible that both the inside and outside interfaces be shared among 2 contexts , according to me the same is not possible , please let me know your views .
