Alternative for Redundant Interface on FirePOWER

Hi,

 

I have  FirePOWER 2100 but I am using ASA code. I am migrating from ASA 5510 to FIrePOWER 2100.

In the previous setup, with ASA 5510, I have Redundant interfaces configured, but the FirePOWER 2100 does not support this kind of interfaces.

What can I use as an alternative to Redundant Interface?

 

Thanks!

You can use a logical interface called port-channel. Port-channels or Ether-channels support up to 8 interfaces in the group (on the 2100). If you use 2 interfaces in the port-channel, you actually double your speed across that link. Should one link fail the other will be active and keep the connection up. 

 

In this platform the port-channel is setup in the FXOS. See:

Hope that helps.

Hi Michael,

 

Sorry to respond so late. The setup is like in the diagram attached. Will the EtherChannel interface behave as Redundant ? 

If the port to FW1 will go down, will the EtherChannel use the second port to the FW2 ?

 

I will also test in lab.

 

Thank you for your response!

Thank you very much! The Ether-Channel is working !
