failover : Enables Failover.

failover lan unit primary : Makes the unit that this command is entered as the primary FW

failover lan interface failover Management0/0: Specify which interface will be used for exchanging FW Hellos and other messges.

failover polltime unit 3 holdtime 9 : This command changes  the frequency at which Failover hellos are sent to the other FW

failover replication http : Enter this if you want http sessions to be replicated to the standby FW. if this is entered, user will not have to refresh his browser.

failover link failover Management0/0 : Specify the interface for exchanging state information.

failover interface ip failover 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.240 standby 192.168.0.2 : Specify the Failover IP addresses.

Hello,

Get  used to referencing these links bellow ,  look at command line syntax for each command .   Read the " Usage Guidelines "  that explains each command usage.


Command reference failover
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa82/command/reference/ef.html


This is how failover works,  read this link  - Active/Standby   failover  overview
