I have a customer with an IBM blade center, it has 2 Cisco blade switches installed, (3112)
I have connected the inside interfaces of a pair of ASAs and CSSs in failover configuration, to the external ports on each switch, but as each switch is effectively standalone, the ASA failover doesn't work due its inside interfaces not 'seeing' each other, as they are in different switches.
Would I be ok in patching a cross-over cable between both blade switches, and this would then allow ASA failover to work properly.
Or would this link create a loop with the blade servers?
Any help would be grately appreciated
