Add Cisco ASA to a live ASA

                  I currently have a Cisco 5510 runing on my network. I have just ordered a second 5510 for failover.

I would like to to ensure that when I configure HA the live config gets sync'd and not the blank/brand new config. Otherwise I'll loose all my config.

Can someone advise the best steps to take? Of course I'll take a backup before I start.

Thanks in advance.

Pre-configure the secondary unit the same as the live, but have the command failover unit secondary on the new device. All should be OK.

Hi Martin,

In addition to Andrew's suggestion - I guess you are planning to add the unit first time (not replacing any failed stdby unit). In this scenario, I suggest you schedule a maintenance window as you need to add the standby ip + failover configuration on primary (current ASA). Once that is done, adding standby unit is very easy.Check the below link for more information.
