I have a pair of PIX 515E (6.3) running in failover mode. They are currently connecting to a single chassis core. We are upgrading our network with dual 6500's at the core. Is there a way to connect each PIX to a separate core (PIX 1 - Core1, PIX 2 - Core2) to allow for a core failure?
Core 1 and Core 2 will have a L2 link between them. If the current active PIX is connected to Core1, and Core 1 dies, this would not cause the failover PIX to take over. All LAN traffic would be going through Core 2, but since it does not have an active path to the active PIX 1, traffic would drop. Is my thinking correct?
Is there a way to connect the PIX's to dual cores running V6.3?
