I have recently added a layer2 leaf to my network configuring ASA's at each of my two locations. the remote site config is working fine but I have having major issues with my ASA5505. I use a tracked route to treat data going from my primary site to the remote site but the link keeps dropping.
Please see below some of my config.

if I plug into ether0/4 I cannot ping back to the 192.168.16.10 interface which leads me to think that there is a bug somewhere on the applicance.
I have just had the device upgraded to version 7.2(5)
The interface should not go 'down' if a host is physically connected to the port. RIght after connecting the host to Eth0/4, can you ping 192.168.160.10? What is the output of 'show int vlan3' and 'show int eth0/4' at the time? Does your machine directly connected to Eth0/4 show any arp entries (on windows you can do 'arp -an' to see the arp cache).
