IPS upgrade at ASA Failover Scenario

Unanswered Question

Hi guys. We have the following scenario.

Two ASA 5520 in failover, as active/standby, and each ASA has a IPS ASA-SSM-20.

Well, the issue is , when we upgraded the ASA-SSM-20 intalled on Primary (Active) ASA from 5.1.5(E1) to 6.0(1) version, when we reloaded the IPS Module, the secundary ASA became Active.

Is it possible, that the ASA monitoring the IPS Module as a common interface.

I think that the ASA do not to change its failover status because we reloaded the IPS Module.

When we upgraded the IPS Module at the secundary ASA, the issue were the same, and the ASA primary (at this point as standby ready, after the IPS Module comes back online) becames as active.

Thanks in advance!!!

I have this problem too.
