ASA 5520 context licensing question

Answered Question
Jun 4th, 2012

Hi All,

can you please let me know how many contexts are allowed to be used on the ASA 5520 active/standby fialover cluster if I have below listed output.

Actually I see that there is 2 security contexts, but my question is if this is including "Admin" context or not?

Like can I have "Admin context" and two more?
