Cisco VPN :: ASA 5510 - SSL VPN Shared License In Active / Standby?

Oct 4, 2012

I recently picked up two ASA5510s (ASA5510-SSL50-K9 & ASA5510-SEC-BUN-K) with intentions of creating an Active/Standy configuration. I'm receiving the error message "Mates' license (2 SSL VPN Peers) is not compatible with my license (50 SSL VPN Peers)", but I was under the impression that I didn't have to buy idential SSL VPN licenses post 8.2 in an Active/Standby configuration.  am I missing a step that enables the license transfer(sharing?) feature to work correctly before the failover will build correctly?

Cisco Security :: ASA 5545 - 8.6 - Active / Standby - License Upgrade

Feb 4, 2013

We are planning to upgrade the ASA license in an A/S pair by adding the ASA5500-SC-20= license. The ASA is 5545 and runs 8.6. According to documentation, after 8.3 version, the ASAs can share a license features and do not require the same license on both boxes. I run a test in GNS3 with 8.4(2) images and I saw that by adding the 'activation-key' command only on the primary unit did the job as the 'show activation-key' output shows. In order to be 100% sure would like to verify the following:

Putting the activation-key only on the primary unit is enough and there is no need to do anything elseIn case the primary unit is standby, again we have to put the actication-key command on the primary unit (I am asking this because the 'activation-key' command is not listed under the commands that are not replicated to the other unitk, but doesn't make sense to be replicated since the activation-key is 'tied' with the S/N of the device).

Cisco Firewall :: ASA5520 - AnyConnect License On Active / Standby Failover Pair?

Mar 6, 2013

Our customer has purchased 2 x L-ASA-AC-E-5520= Anyconnect Essentials VPN Licenses (750 Users)Ive installed both activated licenses as per the cisco guides, I didnt get any errors on the install. I did a reload on both, they are both back up and running as active/standby but when I do a sh ver the license still shows "ASA 5520 VPN Plus License"Am I being dumb and has this worked successfully or should it not now display Anyconnect when I do a sh ver?

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5510 Active And Standby Failover

Apr 18, 2012

i read that you need only one L-ASA5510-SEC-PL for setting up a Active/Standby Failover. I installed the license on the 1st ASA and tried to setup the failover via the ASDM wizard. It always fails, because the 2nd device can't have a 'base' license.So does this mean, i really need another license?

Cisco Firewall :: 5510 - ASA Active / Standby Configuration

Jun 4, 2012

I currently have a LAN-based failover setup between two 5510s. The failover link is a crossover cable. In the current setup, if I unplug the crossover cable both units become active. From what I understood from Cisco documentation, each unit should mark the failover interface as down and there shouldn't be any failover. That's exactly how I want this setup to work.

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5510 Dual ISP Active / Standby Fail Over

Apr 2, 2013

I have a dual ISP, 1 primary and 1 secondary terminated on fa0 and fa2 on our ASA respectively. ASA was configured so that, when the primary fails, the secondary kicks in.  [code]
 
It was until yesterday that we experienced downtime on the primary ISP that the secondary doesn't do the fail-over. I have to manually configure the device to use the secondary ISP. Currently, I'm looking at maybe this has something to do with the licensing.We are currently using a Base License, should we be upgrading to Security Plus?

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5510 - Setting Up Active And Standby Firewalls

Oct 14, 2011

I have a 5510 ASA and have been given another an told to make them active and standby.  Basically the active one is working great but the second one has no config on it apart from the default one, but is the same firmware level.  I guess I need a crossover cable, and what happens with the inside and outside interfaces, would they need to go into a vlan on a switch, one inside vlan where the 2 firewalls inside interface go into and another vlan for the outside?  Otherwise if it failsover to the standby ASA the inside and outside interfaces wouldn't work.

Cisco Firewall :: 5510 Active / Standby Failover Errors

Jan 25, 2012

I just added a new 5510 failover unit to an existing 5510 and when connecting my new outside interface on an Active/Standby firewall pair, i get errors messages (red x) on each port scan (monitor & syslog) although the error message indicate all ports are good...additionally the firewalls flip between active and standby non stop. I remove the new standby unit outside interface from a shared switch and everything clears up.

Cisco Firewall :: 5510 Setup In Active / Standby Failover Configuration

May 8, 2012

We have 2 ASA 5510's setup in an active, standby failover configuration. When the primary fails over to standby, the 3rd party cert does not failover to the standby ASA. The users then receive the CERT missing, invalid message and have to select yes, no to move on. This does not occur when the primary is not in failover mode. It is my understanding that failover fails over certs but in our case it does not apper to be working correctly.

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5520s From Active / Standby To Active / Active

Jul 17, 2012

I have a pair of ASA 5520s operating in failover pair as active/standby, having two contexts on them. I am planning to share the load and make it active/active making first context active on the primary unit and second context active on the secondary unit. My question is if this will disrupt any connectivity thru these firewalls when I do "no failover" on the active/standby and assign the contexts to different failover groups and enable the failover back.

Cisco :: How To Get LMS 4.2 Active / Standby

Dec 13, 2012

We are preparing to upgrade from LMS 3.2 where we run 2 seperate independant instances in seperate locations for redundancy.  Each instance forwards syslog traps to a seperate Openview system in the associated location.  Device updates are manually done on each system.
 
To reduce costs and administrative overhead we are considering switching to an active-standby environment when we upgrade to LMS 4.2 where the active system would forward traps to both Openview systems.
 
Any experience with an active-standby Ciscoworks LMS 4.2 environment, specifically; When one system becomes unavailable (due to network, system or application issues) is promoting the standby system to active automatic?How long does it take?
 
Does the standby system still monitor syslog events and initiate automated actions? Where the active system stops working or hangs and the standby system does not go active?
 
Are there any reliability issues with database updates or synchronization from the active system to the standby system? Is there a way to test communications from the standby system for new device turn-ups without making it active?

Cisco :: See An Active / Standby Mac Address Section In ADSM?

Dec 17, 2012

I'm not quite ready for the Automatic Failover feature that the ASA 5520 support. For now we have a cold stand by unit. I was wondering if I can change the mac addresses of the standby unit's interfaces to be exactly the same as the primary unit. I see an active/standby mac address section in ADSM, but I think that is used in the automatic failover function.

On the LAN link configuration page (step 3of6) Interface is pre selected as VLAN99, I give it a logical name as iface_fail, and enter 10.0.0.1 as primary address and 10.0.0.2 as standby, subnet as 255.255.255.248, and select port Ethernet0/5
 
Note that if i click on the buttons next to the IP fields, i get IP addresses of remote hosts!.

Cisco VPN :: Configuring Two ASA 5520s In Active / Standby Configuration?

I'm working on configuring two ASA 5520's in an Active/Standby configuration.  I've got almost everything the same between the two units for AnyConnect to work expect the following two items:

     AnyConnect Client Profiles
     AnyConnect Client Software
 
If I upload the software manually to the Standby unit I get warning about them not being in sync and on the active unit if I do a 'write standby' it does not copy the profile or software.

Cisco Security :: ASA Migration From 8.2 To 8.4 (active / Standby) Without Outage

Mar 21, 2012

I need to upgrade a pair (active/standby) of ASA from 8.2.5 to 8.4.3 ... I have a script created to modify all NAT rules I need, and I have tested it in lab, and I think I'm good with it. Now, I want to figure out if there's a way to do this without an outage. Previously, when configuration were compatible between version, there was no problem. You could usually force secondary unit to be active, upgrade primary (rebooting), making primary the active again, and do the upgrade on secondary ... no outage at all
 
Now, as new software doesn't support old configuration, if I follow that process, as soon as I bring primary up with new software, it will try to get the configuration from the active one, which won't work ... Is there another option than having a short outage (turn off secondary acting as active, while primary is coming back with new software and configuration already changed?)

Cisco Security :: ASA 5540 SSM-4GE Active / Standby Failover

Aug 4, 2011

we had such kind of issue: while installing 2 SSM-4GE modules to 2 ASA 5540 (Active/Standby) the firewall is splitted. That's my step:

1) Turn off standby ASA and plug SSM-4GE module

2) Power it On After it was booted up failover relationships were broked and previously stabdby became Active appliance.

3) Turn off active ASA and plug SSM-4GE module

4) Power it On

After the it was booted up failover comes up and previously Active (on step 2) appliance became Standby. Everything is up and running now, but the issue was on step 2, I suppose becouse of distinct in hardware (when one ASA was on SSM reachest than another one). Still have no ideas why so happens and is there any way to plug SSM modules int ASA active/standby cluster without downtime.

I have just finished setting up two ASA5510s in Active/Standby Staeful failover, using the Management interface for both failover and state. Everything appears to be working well.Configurations were transferred and the "sh failover" on both accurately reports their status before and after a failing the active device.I monitored the inside IP with a continuous ping (using a Windows client) and noticed that there were usually two to three ping responses lost. Is this normal?

Cisco Firewall :: IPS Modules In ASA5510 Active / Standby Pair

Feb 6, 2012

I am looking to add the IPS module to my ASA 5510's. I am contemplating only purchasing one module and placing it in the active ASA. I am willing to accept that in a failure scenario I will loose the IPS functionality until the primary ASA is recovered. I have not had a chance to talk to my SE to see if this is even possible. Has anyone attempted a deployment such as this? Will it work and is it supported?

Cisco Firewall :: 5505s - Secondary ASA Active And Primary Is On Standby

Dec 5, 2011

We have 2 ASA 5505s in a data center at a remote site.
 
Whilst troubleshooting another issue I noticed the below. I don't know much about fail over but this would suggest that the secondary ASA is active and the primary ASA is on standby.
 
if the primary is "active" then how come the secondary is the active ASA? I would have thought that once the primary ASA became active this would assume the "main" role".

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5550 Transparent Active / Standby Configuration

I am in the process of adding a new ASA 5550 as a standby box to an existing ASA 5550 running on transparent mode. Both are on version ASA 8.0(4) and ASDM 6.2(1). I have set the new ASA 5550 to transparent mode. The configurations are the following for the HA: [code]My questions are the following:

1. The management ip address is different than the ip used for the failover link. Since the firewalls are on transparent mode, does the failover ip needs to be the same as the management ip address?
 
2. Does any other additional config is needed for HA to work for basic active/stand-by failover?
 
3. Which is the best method to add the second box without disrupting the active box?

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5540 - Active / Standby Failover Pair

Apr 13, 2011

I currently have two 5540's in an Active/Standby pair. The primary unit failed on February 12th, so the secondary ASA is now the active one. My question is this - we have made a lot of changes since February 12th and I am planning on fixing this failover issue over the weekend. Will the secondary (now active) FW sync it's config to the non-active FW, or will the failed FW sync it's out-of-date config - removing any changes that we've made in the last month or so.
