I have 2 asa 5550's v8.2 in an active/standby config, our secondary failed and we have a new RMA unit from cisco. After MUCH stress from tac getting the right feature set on it I am taking another stab tomorrow morning using the following procedure.
Commands on primary
failover (is currently disabled)
Commands on secodary
failover lan interface fail g1/0
failover interface ip fail 192.168.25.2 255.255.255.248 standby 192.168.25.2
int g1/0 no shut
failover lan unit secondary
copy run start
Question, in v8.2 do I need to run a "write standby"?
Going off of http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa82/configuration/guide/ha_active_standby.html#wp1107287 I dont see a write standby in there as part of the secondary procedure.
Also, if this is a production firewall will this disrupt traffic on the primary unit even if the intention is the primary will stay the primary?
