Use ASA 5520 Management port for Failover link

I need to have two DMZs, inside and outside ports which uses all the ports on the ASA5520 so I was hoping to use the management port as the failover and state link (and do management from the inside interface). But I get the message: "Interface management is not a failover or stateful interface." Is it possible to use the management port?

Hi the management interface is meant for management purpose only, however it can be used as ay other interface by removing the management-access command from it s configuration.

int m0/0

no management-access

Note: Be aware that depending of your setup you can also use subinterfaces.

I hope it helps .. please rate it if it does !!!

Hello,

you should try the following:

failover

failover lan unit primary (Secondary for backup)

failover lan interface "logicalFailoverName" Management0/0

failover key 1234567 (if you want to encrypted)

failover link "logicalFailoverName" Management0/0

failover interface ip "logicalFailoverName" 10.xxx.xxx.1 255.255.255.0 standby 10.xxx.xxx.2

if that worked your Management0/0 should look like this:

interface Management0/0

description LAN/STATE Failover Interface

Create sub interfaces on the other physical interfaces(you will want to do this eventually anyway) and then just use one of the physical interfaces as the failover.
