FWSM Active/Active multicontext preemption

Hi friends, I was wondering if any one of you have faced simillar problem that I am facing.

 

I have 2 FWSM's 3.1(5), in two seperate 6509's running native IOS 12.2(18)SXF7.

 

I have created 2 groups with one active on each switch. Problem is they are always active on the primary FWSM. Group 2 configured to stay active on secondary FWSM doesn't preempts. and likewise if you take primary down then all contexts are failed over to secondary but again wihtout any preemption for group 1 from Primary.

 

I checked wht ever I could remember like switch vlan's, sync between them, ping each other.

 

is there any body out there who has been throught this ?..

 

Thanks in advance

 

Pls see attached files for show tech.

Re: FWSM Active/Active multicontext preemption

Hi,

I've checked the conf. but on the context admin I can't find the command :

failover replication http

Why ?

HI Friend,

I am not thinking of using admin context to carry user traffic,as I have 20 context license. I hope this answers your question

Thx
