I have 2 independent traffic routes to my servers. They are serviced by a failover Cisco ASA5505 pair. However, should my gigabit switch on the main route fail (or main internet feed), the ASA will not detect this and failover to the standby route.
To get around this, I can detect failure of the active route from a server, easy enough.
Tricky bit: Can I run a console command/batch file to initiate this failover?
