FWSM/ASA in Transparent passing Lacp ? [ for LB purposes ]
I think you're asking for trouble with this scenario.
Here's something to consider. Lacp should send one specific flow over a given interface, so you'd think you would be ok. However, since the return flow gets balanced by a differnet switch, it won't necessarily end up on the same trunk. At that point, the other firewall wouldn't know about the flow, and would drop the traffic.
Now that asa supports terminating lacp, you're much better off spending a bit more and getting a bigger firewall in the first place.
