PIX 515e doesn't fail back to primary

Unanswered Question
Dec 5th, 2008

I have a pair of 515e firewalls setup for failvoer and a serial failover cable between. When the primary has a failure the secondary takes over, when the primary comes back to a normal state the secondary continues active. Should the primary not "preempt" the secondary and become active because of the special cable joining the two?

I have this problem too.

...according to Cisco documentation the process of restoring a failed unit is manual, meaning that a command must be entered to allow the physical primary to become active again...

hostname(config)#failover reset
