Hello, I am trying to deploy an active/active multi-context solution using the hardware noted above.

I believe I have done all required to get this working however I am still seeing fail over times of

around 50 seconds.

The ASAs blades and the supervisors have identical images:-

Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 9.1(2) <context>
Device Manager Version 6.5(1)
Compiled on Thu 09-May-13 16:20 PDT by builders
Hendon up 17 days 21 hours
failover cluster up 26 days 21 hours
Hardware:   WS-SVC-ASA-SM1

Cisco IOS Software, s72033_rp Software (s72033_rp-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Version 15.1(2)SY4a, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

I have this config on both the 6506 supers:-

firewall autostate
firewall multiple-vlan-interfaces
firewall module 6 vlan-group 56
firewall vlan-group 56  12,41-44,51-54,56-60,68,69,72,73,76,77,88,97-99,199,858,860,2009,2012,2041
firewall vlan-group 56  2051,2053,2054,2057,2060,2076,2077,2088,2098,2099,2142,2152,2156,2158,2159
firewall vlan-group 56  2188,2197,2199

I can paste in further content on request. Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks
