yes, and powering the standby, there is no point in time where I will loose any connectivity or my end users will have even brief outage?

Failover usually cases a small interruption, if you dont configure it properly it can be up to 15 seconds. I aim to lose one ping packet in a constant ping when I failover firewalls (its one of the tests I do.

Make sure you see something like

PetesASA(config)# failover poll 1 hol 3
PetesASA(config)# failover poll interface 3
PetesASA(config)# int m0/0
PetesASA(config-if)# failover poll interface 3

Open in new window

Where the failover interface is M0/0
