I have ASA pair with Active /Standby. Last time as per requirement I failed over the asa from active (ASA1 ) to standby (ASA 2) by applying the command " no failover active " on the primary unit (ASA 1 ). and which made the sec ASA 2 as active.
No I want to make the primary ASA 1 as active again . So to accomplish this which on the below step I have to do
1. no failover active" on the sec ASA 2 --- will this make the ASA 1 as active. ( as I already removed the command no failover active on the prim ASA 1 for the first failover )
2.Failover active " on the primary ASA 1 ---( do I need to do this through console of ASA 1 as I cannot access the ASA 1 directly )
So please let me know the procedure in this scenario .
Appreciate your advice
"failover active" and "no failover active" are exec commands and not configuration file settings.
To failover an HA pair, one executes either the former command on the standby unit or the latter command on the active unit. Their configurations remain the same - only their failover states will change.
