Readers,

Is it possible to configure redundant interfaces on the Management port?

Thanks,

Timothy

Ya Timothy. I think that was what I had replied to. Technically not possible to group, on the same firewall. If you need redundancy, you need to have a failover firewall.

or else, if you want, u can monitor the firewall on other ports available.

Does this answer your question ?

Happy New year. have a great year ahead.

Hi Raj... Sorry I don't agree with your response here.

It is possible to group interfaces on the same firewall for redundancy with the "Interface Redundant" command. Unfortunately though the Managment port can't be included in a interface bundle , even if you are using it to pass traffic as a standard port....which doesn't make sense to me.

normal ASA boxes just have a single management interface.. I really dont feel the need for redundancy here.. If you need one, you can get a failver ASA box, and build up redundancy..

in any case, you have other interaces like inside, through which you can enable management, like telnet, http etc, if required.. or any other DMZ interface (say network management DMZ)... its all flexible.. with all these, i really dont see any need for a redundant management port...

Hope this helps.. all the best..

Raj,

If possible, I was looking for a technical answer rather than your feelings for the soundness of my question.

Thanks,

Raj,

All I ws trying to find out was is it technically possible to configure another physical interface on an ASA5510 as a management interface and then have it assigned along with Management0/0 as a redundant group?

Thanks,
