ASA 5585-X with Nexus 7710 vpc

Working on a migration project , where on the top there are 2 ASA 5585-X and then 2 Nexus 7710, there are many 5 to 7 vrf will be on Nexus devices and vrf communication will be going to be via ASA devices and there are many routes in each vrf , my question is if we configure vPC on Nexus devices then we can't configure any routing protocol b/w ASA and Nexus cuz of the vPC limitation (don't support routing protocol) only option left is to configure static routes on ASA if we configure vPC on nexus , please give the best solution/practice in this scenario.


Thanks & regards.

I recently built the same

I recently built the same scenario and used static routes per vrf pointing to port-channel subinterfaces in ASA where the policies for each VRF will be configured. I think this scenario is ok.
