ASA 5515-X Base License Failover Disabled

I've got 2 ASA 5515-X firewalls that I want to set up in an HA pair.  According to this link, the 5515-X is supposed to allow active/active and active/passive failover with the base license.  When I run "show activation-key" on either of the units, I get the following output.  If I try to enable failover, it says that it's not licensed.  Is there some step to activating failover on these devices?  They are running version 9.1 of the ASA firmware.

Are you really sure that it's

Are you really sure that it's a 5515-X? The output matches a 5512-X with a base license.

You're right, I was taking

You're right, I was taking the word of another tech and didn't bother to verify the model myself until you said that.  Thanks for helping me figure that out!
