Mohamad,


Yes, you need to buy licensing for the failover unit as well. Both units should have the same hardware, software configuration, and proper license.


I hope it helps.

Even if the the ASA is running in Active/Standby mode and not in Active/Active mode and there is no disscounted price of the failover?

Yes, that is my understanding.


I would highly recommend that you contact your local sales team regarding discounts and maybe they can work something out.

yes.. u will have to have to boxes which have the same replicated hardware/licenses. ASA pricing is not like PIX firewalls, where the failover unit is half of the price of the primary.. but u have ur own limitations there, where the failover unit cannot be used as a standalone unit at any point of time.... whereas in ASA u can use both the boxes in standalone boxes too...


in ASA, the active and the standby units must have identical software/hardware...


hope this helps.. all the best...rate replies if found useful..
