Description (partial)

- If manually configured the "mac-address mac_address [ standby mac_address ]" within the physicall interface, bot ASAs active and standby will use the same active MAC address disrupting the traffic.
- If the "mac-address" command is used within the subinterface then both ASAs will negotiate properly the MAC address based on the failover state.
