ASA Management Port Best Practices

What is the recommended configuration for the management port on an ASA when in single contect mode and OSPF enabled.

Im in the process of migrating from a 525 to 5520. Im not sure how to handle the routing for accessing the management interface. I use OSPF to obtain my inside network routing, and I wonder how accessing the management port from another network will work

Re: ASA Management Port Best Practices

Personally I found the in band management port to be useless. If it's in band and all interfaces connect to your lan, who cares which ip you manage on, eh? As you were eluding to, provisioning the mgmt port outside of your existing routing leads to a lot of complexity that will only cause you grief down the road. I have a AS2511 for reverse telnet access to the console and ssh to the inside interface for daily chores.

HTH pls rate!
