FWSM hostname on redundant unit

Answered Question
Oct 20th, 2008

After configuring failover on FWSM, the hostname on the secondary unit gets overwritten. Can this be avoided. I would like to identify via the hostname that which one is active.


I have this problem too.

The code you are running A1(6.3a) doesnt support this command.

Use Prompt command on primary to recongnize which one is active.

prompt hostname context state

Will add sate (primary/secondary) to the prompt.

Your prompt will show you if you are working on an Active or Standby FWSM
