ASA 5515 management interface

I started to configure a new ASA 5515 to replace an 5510.  When I attempted to remove the "management-only" command from the Management0/0 interface I was greeted with the following error:

"ERROR: It is not allowed to make changes to this option for management interface on this platform."

Does this mean we can't use the managment interface anymore on these newer ASAs?  I was planning on using that port when we bought it.  If this is the case, let this be a warning to whoever is counting the managment port as a 7th interface on the 5515!

Re: ASA 5515 management interface

Update: I just found out that you can't use the management interface for failover purposes either.     Argggggg.

"Management interface cannot be configured for failover on this platform."

That's correct.

The new X series platforms, while adding ports in their base configurations over their predecessors, limit you to using the management port for management.
