I am trying to setup Active/Standby failover on two ASA 5520's. Originally i was connecting the two via a crossover cable, now im going through a switch. For some reason i can not get the two devices to recognize each other. ive tried from the CLI and from the ASDM but nothing. i setup GigabitEthernet0/2 on each ASA to be te failover link between both. The IP's are as follows,
Primary ASA - 192.168.40.1 255.255.255.0
Secondary ASA - 192.168.40.2 255.255.255.0
i can ping between the two over that line just fine but when i launch the High Availability and Scalability Wizard and put in the peer address it says it cant communicate with the peer. They can communicate via pings to each other but as far as the failover goes they dont talk to each other, what am i doing wrong here?
