Is there a way to trigger stateful (or stateless) failover on ASA 55xx (8.0.3) when there's a failure on the IPS unit? I understand the fail open/fail close and its application on a single firewall, but the better solution for an IPS failure in a redundant pair would seem to be a stateful failover to the other ASA, and I don't see that as a documented feature.
If the SSM in the Active unit fails (i.e. 'show module' shows the SSM as "Down"), a failover will occur and the Standby unit will now become Active. The ASA does interpret a failed SSM as being less healthy than its mate who has an available SSM.
