ASA Active/Standby ASDM Configuration Problem


I am trying to configure Active/Standby LAN-based stateful failover on two ASA 5510 running OS version 7.2(3)and having Security Plus license.

I assigned IP addresses to the interfaces as shown in the attachement and I could ping all interfaces. The interfaces are connected using cross-over cables.

When I started High Availability Wizard in ASDM to configure Failover, I get the error message " One or more of the peer connectivity or cpmpatibility test failed. You must resolve the problems before you can proceed further."

Also, I tried configuring failover using the CLI according to the document at

When I got to step 4b under LAN based failover, I get the error message:

Primary-ASA(config)# failover interface ip failover standby

Interface failover is not a failover or stateful interface.

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? Any problems with licensing on these ASAs?

Thanks for your help.

Re: ASA Active/Standby ASDM Configuration Problem

Thanks. I solved the problem.

It was due to the old config that I had on the ASAs. I simply removed the old config and started afresh.
