Re: ASA 5510 License confusion

according to this link : http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6120/prod_models_comparison.html

Yes you can do A/S failover.

Q: then what license should be on second ASA which i am going to buy?

A: You will need the same license ( as it's required point for FO), and same hardware... take a look at the link in the privous answer.

I don't understand why you have 0 Sec contexts?? you should have 2 at least!

Good luck.

@ netsec@smals

Thank you for your email, and the link, i also researched and on same conclusion, about security contexts, i just upgraded my IOS from 7.0(8) to 8.2(1)and now i have 2 contexts.

i will be making fail over configuration in day or two, then update you, in case of issue.
