Failover ASA 5520


I have two ASA 5520 and i wonder if the following failover configuration is possible. Can i use the management 100 FE interface for sharing regular and stateful failover. If so we have 4 Gigabit interface to use for other tasks. Or do i have to use one of the gigabit interfaces for the failover function to work.

/Regards Jonny


Re: Failover ASA 5520

CSS 11501 and CSS 11503 - A maximum of 256 VLANs per CSS and 64 VLANs per port (FE or GE)

CSS 11506 - A maximum of 512 VLANs per CSS and 64 VLANs per port (FE or GE)

Use the bridge vlan command to specify a VLAN and associate it with the specified Ethernet interface. Enter an integer from 1 to 4094 as the VLAN identifier. The default is 1. All interfaces are assigned to VLAN1 by default

Re: Failover ASA 5520

I believe that you can. You will have to go into the adsm and uncheck the box that says 'use this interface for management only" on the Management0/0 interface. I have setup failover on a pair of 5520's but I used g0/4 not the mgmt interface.
