Active\Standby in multiple context mode

Hi,

I have a pair of ASA 5550 running in active\standby with software ver 8.3. I want to convert my ASAs from single to multiple context mode, but I was wondering how active\standby is configured in this mode. The system context does not allow any IP addresses to be configured and the documentation states that in multiple context mode the IPs must be configured in the admin context. If this is the case, how do I monitor my interfaces assigned to other contexts? Do I have to configure failover separately in each individual context?

Re: Active\Standby in multiple context mode

this should help you

if you want to still make it active standby, put all the contexts in one failover group (this will make sense once you go through the document)

let me know if you have any queries
