Try this and it works for me when failover mates change and sends alert immediately... This sends both syslogs messages 7 and mail. For traps syslog, o enable debug fover commands on both devices if you need to troubleshoot further of the failover changes in details (pcap).. Hope this helps...


logging enable
logging timestamp
logging standby
logging buffer-size 10000
logging buffered warnings
logging trap debugging
logging mail critical
logging from-address [email protected]
logging recipient-address [email protected] level errors

logging facility 23
logging device-id hostname
logging host inside x.x.x.x

Yes, syslog message# 104001, 104002


There are a few more within the 104xxx range in regards to failover that you might be interested:
