ASA 5520 use HSRP on multi context

There are two ASA 5520.

Is it possible to use HSRP on multi context each other?

Re: ASA 5520 use HSRP on multi context

ASA does not support load balance within the same context. ASA load balance multiple context as follows:

Context-A via ASA-1, Context-B via ASA-2

You can't route half traffic for Context-A via ASA-1 and the other half through ASA-2 --> this is not supported.

Thank you for reply.

So how about Virtual IP address?

ASA-1 contextA and ASA-2 contextA can have a same Virtual IP using HSRP?

Sorry my question is bad because of my English.

I hope Active/Standby.

For exsample, One ASA(ASA-1) has context-A,context-B, other ASA(ASA-2) has context-A,context-B.

Then, ASA-1 context-A has VIP (192.168.1.1:Active), ASA-2 context-A has VIP (192.168.1.1:Standby).

Is above possible?

No, that is not supported.

Context-A can't be on both ASA-1 and ASA-2.

You can configure the following:

ASA-1: Context-A, Context-B, Context-C

ASA-2: Context-X, Context-Y

If ASA-2 fails for example, the Context-X and Context-Y will failover to ASA-1, and at this point, ASA-1 will have Context-A, Context-B, Context-C, Context-X and Context-Y

Hope that helps.

Re: ASA 5520 use HSRP on multi context

I think that you must have the same context configured in both ASA.

ASA1  context A  and context B

ASA2  contect A  and context B

In ASA 1 you can Have Context A as Acitive and Context B as standby

In ASA 2 you can have COnext A as stanby and context B as Active

Re: ASA 5520 use HSRP on multi context

Thank you, Halijenn, diegocambronero.

You are right, I should use Failover, diegocambronero.

I'll do that.thanks.

And I'm interested in Halijenn say things.

I dont understand it very well.

It's impossible to configure HSRP on multi context, right?

> Context-A can't be on both ASA-1 and ASA-2.

I dont care about I have same context on two ASA.

Just I'd like to know to use HSRP on multi context.

So, did you answer after you already know that?

If I misunderstand, point out me.

Thanks Halijenn.

No, you are right... You can not configure virtual IP or HSRP for ASA in multi context mode.

If you are going to use multiple context you go ahead and user active active failover. It's simple.

Re: ASA 5520 use HSRP on multi context

Failover is possible but not using HSRP.
