I have a cluster of ASA firewalls connected to 2 different switches but only 1 WSA that I want to deploy.
The switches are 2960G, IOS 15.0(1)
ASA1 (active) and WSA -- SW1 -- trunk -- SW2 -- ASA2 (standby)
I was looking at SPAN/RSPAN feature and I have implemented it before but what I wanted to do in this scenario is SPAN ASA1 to WSA T1 and RSPAN ASA2 through the trunk to WSA T1, so in case of failover the traffic is still monitored by WSA without manual intervention.
Then I saw the following restriction in the config guide:
Destination Port: It can participate in only one SPAN session at a time (a destination port in one SPAN session cannot be a destination port for a second SPAN session).
So my config wouldn't work.
Then I thought of using T2 on SW2 but it seems that it is used differently (1 for tx traffic, 1 for rx traffic) and this wouldn't work either.
Any ideas how I can do this?
What my config would look like (had it been supported):
monitor session 1 source interface gigabitethernet0/1
monitor session 1 destination interface gigabitethernet0/2 ingress untagged vlan 33
monitor session 2 source remote vlan 901
monitor session 2 destination interface gigabitethernet0/2 ingress untagged vlan 33
monitor session 2 source interface gigabitethernet0/1
monitor session 2 destination remote vlan 901
