Hi Michael,


Have you tried issuing the 'write standby' command on the Active unit to see if the configurations will sync up?


Also, I would suggest looking to see if there are there any syslogs generated during a time when the pair is trying to sync their configs. You can also take a look at the output of 'debug fover sync' when the pair is syncing and 'show failover' to see if anything stands out there that may help you point to the problem.

Hi Michael,


So if you try a 'write memory' on the Standby unit, do the startup and running configs become in sync again? Do you get any error messages when trying to do this? Maybe there is a problem with the flash that is preventing you from storing the startup config?
