ADDING A NEW LICENSE CONTEXT

Hello,

I have two ASA 5585X in cluster mode with 20 context each one,  I want upgrade the context to 40, for each one.

Must I buy  two new license with 20 context for get 40 context each one ?   or Must I buy a Two new license with 40 Context ?

Regards,

Fidel Gonzalez

Re:ADDING A NEW LICENSE CONTEXT

New versions of ASA combine features if you have failover pair
Ex:
You have two ASA 5540s, one with 20 contexts and the other with 10 contexts; the combined license allows 30 contexts. For Active/Active failover, one unit can use 18 contexts and the other unit can use 12 contexts, for example, for a total of 30; the combined usage cannot exceed the failover cluster license (in this case, 30).
