I know that the usual and recommended method for activating failover is to apply configuration to both devices, power up the secondary, patch the failover cable in then reboot the secondary.
I want to know if I will have any problems fully configuring both primary and secondary units, patching in the failover link at both ends, then powering on the secondary device?
I ask because I need to activate failover, but am not available on the day to assist, so I went everything fully configuring so that all they have to do is power on the secondary device on the day.
Thanks in advance,
Having the right failover configs (enabled failover) on both units, keeping the secondary shut down while the primary is passing traffic, cabling them up for failover and just booting the secondary will work just fine.
I hope it helps.
