How to configure LAN-based failover on the ASA

Core issue

Failover can be enabled in these two different ways:

  1. Active/Standby In this setup, only the primary firewall remains active and the secondary one remains in standby mode.

  2. Active/ Active This setup enables both firewall to remain active and can also facilitate load balancing the traffic.


Refer to Configuring Failover for more information on the requirement to setup failover, along with the detailed procedure of the failover configuration.
