Help with Contexts

Ok I'm trying to setup Active/Active on 2 Asa5520's

Basically I have 2 core switches connected to each firewall.

I want Vlan 50 traffic to route through Firewall 1 and Vlan 100 traffic to route through Firewall 2, for load balancing.

How do I setup contexts to allow this?

Re: Help with Contexts

The security appliance does not provide load balancing services. Load balancing must be handled by a router passing traffic to the security appliance.

Follow the steps described in the link below to configure the ASA's for Active/Active failover.

Re: Help with Contexts

In my opinion, this link is best for the setup of Active/Active. Lots of nice diagrams and things to explain what is happening. The Active/Active setup is about half way down.

Rate if this helps please.

Good Luck,

Chris
