does the ASA 5505 do any kind of stateful failover?
The cisco website says no, but i've had a salesman tell me it does.
I notice the 5510 can do it with lisenced software... is this correct?
Sorry, not much experience with ASA's
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please supply the cisco page that states the ASA does not perform statefull failover, as this is not 100% true - there are 1 or 2 situations where the ASA does not perform statefull failover.
See the below url:-
Thanks for the reply,
so if the ASA's have version 7.x or above, you can configure them as you would with 2 PIX's?
with a serial cable as the failover interface?
I breifly drafted through and probably not taking it all in properly.
OK - here's the thing, the serial cable ONLY carries failover hello's and config replication etc.
If you want statefull failover you need to have a LAN connection between the 2 devices.
thanks very much for the info.
Do you know what the below quote means from the article? not too familiar with different contexts.
Note: VPN failover is not supported on units that run in multiple context mode as VPN is not supported in multiple context. VPN failover is available only for Active/Standby Failover configurations in single context configurations.
i've found the page that advises thatr the feature is not available on the 5505...
let me know what you think...
ok, now i'm confused...
so the 5505 & 5510 units do not apply to the URL that you posted right at the beggining of this conversation, no?
in general terms, for stateful failover, we need to be looking at 5520??
