Failover firewall Question

Unanswered Question
Feb 4th, 2011


We are going to purchase ASA-5510-SEC-BUN-K9 in order to configure failover do we need only the same model of firewall ? or is there any thing like software feature or hardware port we need to have to configure the failover.



I have this problem too.

Hi Faisal,

For failover to work, both devices must be the same model (ie: ASA-5510), and for the 5510 specifically, both units must also match on having (or not) the Security Plus license.

Therefore, if you are purchasing the ASA-5510-SEC-BUN-K9, (which is the 5510 with the Security Plus license), then you need two of those.

I hope this answers your question.
