Can anyone recommend the best way to run a regular failover test for a pair of ASA firewalls running in Active/Standby please?
Is it just a case of making the active unit a standby?
Yes it is making active unit a standby.
1 power down the active unit to force failover to the standby unit
2 check the connectivity through standby
3 and power on the active unit.
or give (in pix os 6.3)
on primary device:
primary(config)#no failover active
check the connectivity through standby
after bring back active device by issuing below command on standby device
