I have a Cisco L3 switch that I have configured route maps on to amend the next hop to be a firewall. The destination network for the traffic is also connected to the switch (therefore directly connected network), but my issue is this.
If the FW fails, then the traffic will still try to be sent to the down FW due to the route map amending the next hop. Is there a way that I can get the traffic to go via the connected network if the FW should fail? As far as I am aware, the route map will amend the next hop to the FW IP whether the FW is up or not, and therefore the traffic will be dropped.
Am I right on this or has anyone got another idea?
Thanks in advance,
