ASA5540 and failover port selection

Hi, I remeber in PIX world that the failover port should be as fast as the fastest port running in the firewall.

In ASA5540 we have 4 GE and 1 FE (mngt0/0): can I choose the FE (mngt0/0) as the failover lan port ?

thank you in advance

Renato,

With the ASA you need to use one of the 4 GE interfaces as your failover interface on each unit. There are several configuration modes for the ASA in failover and I would encourage you to read through all the documentation available to you for your release of the software.

Re: ASA5540 and failover port selection

Hi, excuse me but in ASA 7.2 command reference under "failover lan interface" command I read "You can use any unused Ethernet interface on the device" and also I can use a logical interface ffor failover lan.

Where did you find the limit to the 4 GE ?

thank you in advance
