ASA-5510-k8 vs ASA-5510-k9

Hello all!

I was wondering if anyone new the difference out there between an ASA5510-k8 and k9. Is this a software or hardware version. If I was using 2 ASA's in failover/standby environment those the 2 need to match or can these be different. Any feedback would be helpful Thanks.

The following table shows the licensing requirements for this feature:

Prerequisites for Active/Standby Failover

Active/Standby failover has the following prerequisites:

Both units must be identical security appliances that are connected to each other through a dedicated failover link and, optionally, a Stateful Failover link.

Both units must have the same software configuration and the proper license.

Both units must be in the same mode (single or multiple, transparent or routed).

Thanks for that information, that helps out a lot. I'm still confused about the name. So If I buy a ASA5510-BUN-K9 can I convert it to a ASA5510-SEC-BUN-K9. Its not a version of the hardware is it?

Sorry. I just seen that there is hardware difference between bun-k9 and sec-bun-k9. Another question I have is that if I purchase a ASA5510-SEC-BUN-K9 does that automatically come with a security plus license. Is there a chance that a ASA5510-SEC-BUN-K9 can come with a base license?
