Re: FMC (Virtual) and FTD deployement with High Availability

Hi,

 

The HA setup is not supported between FMC if they are virtual. The FMC HA is available only for hardware FMC only.

 

As far as FTD is concerned, the HA is supported for both virtual as well as hardware version. The sample configuration is available in:

 

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/security/firepower-management-center/212699-configure-ftd-high-availability-on-firep.html

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Raghunath,

 

Thanks for your reply.

There is another query regarding managing Firepower threat defense appliance through FMC.

 

Can we define more than one manager for Firepower threat defence appliance ?

At any given point in time, the Sourcefire devices will have only 1 FMC as manager excluding HA where the standby FMC will also be shown in the output of "show managers"
