Dual ASA 5520 WCCP Configuration

Hello,

I was trying to find info on this but maybe just not searching it out properly.  I recently configured WCCP with a Sophos Web Filter on my network it works good but the problem I am having is I have two 5520s so I am directing the device to look at 2 different IP addresses and since the devices are in an Active/Passive failover.  The problem is because the second device is in a passive failover it is not responding which is throwing connection errors to my Sophos device.  I know you can have a single management connection for the ASA's but is there a way to have a single IP for the ASAs for the WCCP?  Any options would be greatly appreciated

Yes, using a single IP address (the active one) is the recommended practice. When the HA pair has a failover, the interface address will switch to the new Active unit. Standby unit addresses are only used for those few maintenance activities that need to be done on the physical standby unit.
