Hi every one,we have two FWSM in our 6509 switches,fwsm's are in multiple context mode and are configured for active/active.we have two context= admin and public.here is detail:

FWSM-1=admin(active) public(standby)

FWSM-2=admin(standby) public(active)

so recently for some reason we had failover for FWSM-1 but now every thing is normal except that in fwsm-1 admin is active that shuld be BUT context public which should be in standby-ready is in FAILED state,why?is this for last failover? and now if fwsm-2 fails what would happen?fwsm-1 wont take active rule? consider this that in fwsm-1 context admin monitored interfaces are normal but in fwsm-1 context public all monitored interfaces are in failed state just as context state?
