ASA SM and 6513-E VSS


I'm integrating 2 ASA SM running under ASA OS 9.1.2 - Active/standby/multiple contexts on a 6513-E - VSS multiple layer core switch.

Failover and LAN Failover have been archieve via 2 direct connexions between the 2 chassis 6513-E (2 differents vlan).

In this configuration, when I cut the power on the active ASA SM thanks to the command no power enable switch 1 slot 13, stateful failover seems not to work (the witness FTP session was down for ever)...

Your advices and experience are wellcome !!!

Thanks a lot
