"sh mode" shows you which mode the firewall is running in.


To switch between firewalls either


1) on the current standby firewall use the command - "failover active"


OR


2) on the current active firewall use the command - "no failover active"

thanks that works, how do I change over to the primary firewall, and what command I use to see the mode the two firewall is running in?

Thanks a lot, for some reason I was not able to failover, when I went to the data center I saw that one of the firewall was off.
