Q. Do I need to buy the same licenses for the secondary unit in a failover pair?
A. No. Starting with Version 8.3(1), you do not have to have matching licenses on both units. Typically, you buy a license only for the primary unit; the secondary unit inherits the primary license when it becomes active. In the case where you also have a separate license on the secondary unit (for example, if you purchased matching licenses for pre-8.3 software), the licenses are combined into a running failover cluster license, up to the model limits.
Encryption license—Both units must have the same encryption license.
so it means that if i purchase "ASA5520-BUN-K9" with VPN plus license then i would be able to run my ASAs as primary / Secondary ( Active / Failovers ) units. I am talking about pre-8.3 software version. My ASA Software version is 7.2 and i also want to keep it same on new ASA unit because i am not comfortable with 8.3 or higher.
if above understanding is not correct then please let me know the model/part number details that i need to buy for my secondary ASA to run in active / failover senario.
