asa failover

Posted on 2015-01-09

I need to do an asa failover, I have attached a picture for identification. Will I be able to do the failover in this situation? I have different IP on each side. The link in the middle between the firewalls will obviously match. Uusally when you do the failover, the interfaces IP’s match, are on the same network. If I can’t do that, are there any other option for me to have an asa failover in this situation?

You may be able to do IP SLA on the ASAs for the outside interfaces and VRRP on the inside interfaces (I have not done VRRP on the ASAs.).

You cannot do VRRP on the outside interface because they are different subnets.

You might be able to do IP SLA on the inside interfaces but the best thing would be to put IP SLA on a layer 3 switch to select the default route depending upon the SLA configuration.
