Hi ,

I have a Cisco 6500 VSS pair and Cisco ASA 5525-X firewall.

What design will be good at Firewall side :

Active /Active or Active Standby?

1. If any thing of the above what would be UP link connectivity?
2.Will you pls share the configuration at Firewall?
3.Do you have refference material on the above scenario?

    Since you have exactly ONE firewall it will be STANDALONE.

    There are several limitations to active active ASA configuration such as no support for dynamic routing protocols or VPN. I would do an active passive ASA with stateful failover. The article below shows how to do active active and the limitations. It also links to the active passive configuration article.

    I agree, HA ASA config would be a good solution.
