I have 2 ASA 5520 working in a statefull Active/Failover mode connected to two different routers which are working in HSRP. Now the routers are always taking a Active Active state as the HSRP heartbeats and communications are getting blocked by the ASA in between the failover pair.
Is there a solution to achieve this other than introducing a switching layer between the firewall bundle and the router bundle.
yes i know that it doesnt work this way but was looking for a work around in any as there needs to be an extra investment just to connect the firewalls to the HSRP routers. Thanks anyways for your time.
