Failover

Unanswered Question

I have two PIX 525 running version 8.03 with failover. One of the PIX license is Active/Active, and the other is Active/Standby (FO) license.

One hour ago, the PIX just failover. Currently the secondary PIX (Active/standby) is active, what will happen if this PIX had a problem, will it failover over back to the Primary (Active/Active) itself? or I should manually failover it back to the Primary now instead of waiting?

Thanks

YES

NOT NECESSARY.BUT IF YOU ARE LIKE MANY PPL OUT THERE WHO LIKE TO SEE PRIMARY AS ACTIVE ALWAYS...YOU CAN ISSUE " FAILOVER ACTIVE " COMMAND ON THE PRIMARY/STANDBY UNIT.This would make it active.
