I was wondering if someone could help me determine the limitations of using a failover-only PIX in standalone mode. I was reading this page: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/pix/pix61/configuration/guide/f... and in the Failover Usage Notes it says that the PIX will reboot every 24 hours. But I have been running my failover-only PIX in standalone mode and sho ver shows an uptime of 133 days. Also, it says failover sluster up 288 days. How can that be when the primary unit was disconnected?
I am also wondering if I make configuration changes on the failover and it reboots, will the changes stick? If so, then when I plug the primary back in will those changes get over-written? Is the only way to save those changes to copy the config to TFTP, then copy it to primary before plugging in the primary?
Any other limitations with using failover in standalone?
Thanks a lot!
