Hi all,

We have a question about CSM license. It's said on CSM user guide that when Firewalls are redundant, it is considered as one device.

We have configured 2 context (one active, one failover), but CSM consumes 2 licenses.

is there anything to do so that they are considered as one device?

Thanks for the url.

We use Active/Active Failover. When 2 FWSM are ON, we can't deploy configuration.

So we added the 2 firewalls and all it's contexts on CSM.

Each context is configured with an IP management, we used same IP for 2 contexts acting on failover mode.

There's many contexts and each one consumes one license even if half of them are active.

That's a problem for us.
