(Primary) Lost Failover communications with mate

Hi,

One of the interface on the primary fails and it switchover to secondary, this is happening with the primary firewall with irregular intervals, the ABC interface is a sub-interface and is connected to DMZ switch configured as a trunk. No other SUB-interfaces are failing except ABC interface and the failover switchovers to secondary firewall. As per the cisco documentation it is network problem but the DMZ switches are OK ,no errors in the sh logging , How can i troubleshoot such problem.

: %ASA-1-105005: (Primary) Lost Failover communications with mate on interface ABC

: %ASA-1-105008: (Primary) Testing Interface ABC

%ASA-1-105009: (Primary) Testing on interface ABC Failed

: %ASA-1-104002: (Primary) Switching to STNDBY - Interface check

: %ASA-1-104004: (Primary) Switching to OK.

Hello,

Anybody can help me for the above query.

Hello Clark,

We will need to take the logs from both the switch and the ASA's so we can determine what is causing the outage.

But until the issue happens again we will not be able to determine the issue,

Regards,

Julio

Hi,

Julio thanks for all your support and i appreciate your patients to answer my thread and queries.

God bless you.

  • From the swithces when execute sh logging only interface down and up which is not related to interface ABC which is triggering the failover.

  • From the ASA standby unit which was active i only see the below logs. And on the Active there are many logs how i can filter those logs to collect only failover logs, I have configured logging buffered error still there are many unwanted logs, if i want to filter only failover logs what i shld configure.

On standby unit
