I have two 6509 with two FWSM in failover active/standby. After breaking the failover ( no failover on active side) the standby unit goes to pseudo failover.
Now I want to upgrade the failover unit( not the maintenance partition but the IOS ) and I do not know how to assign an IP address to the fwsm.
I can not place nameif.... or ip address......
Can anybody tell me how to assign an IP address to the FWSM in pseudo failover status?
Create one new L2 vlan in 6500 Switch, then assign the new vlan into the FWSM module.
Now this new L2 vlan will be assigned to FWSM module, then assign primary IP address and standby IP address as well.
Make the necessary routing for this new IP segment.
Now try ping this both primary IP address and secondary IP address and use this new IP address to upload the new image
can you tell me what is the current IOS is running in your FWSM.because it depends on the current IOS version
If you are running 3.x then the upgradation method is different than 4.x
