ASA5525 Failover Active/Standby Status

Appreciate any help with active/standby config. I just finish configuring the firewall and everything is tested fine but  then I noticed the failover status (shown below) shows the standby unit as failed. The configuration between the two unit synch fine but I'm not sure what is going on. Is this normal or is there error somewhere in my configuration.

 

ACTIVE INTERFACE CONFIG SAMPLE

interface GigabitEthernet0/2.422
 vlan 422

Your secondary unit has three

Your secondary unit has three interfaces that the primary is unable to verfy are up:

          Interface inside-isp (10.254.120.5): Failed (Waiting)
          Interface inside (10.254.122.5): Failed (Waiting)
          Interface VPN (10.254.124.5): Failed (Waiting)

Can you see those interfaces up and the addresses reachable from outside the ASA?

As per the configuration you need to replace command on secondary unit as given below

 

failover lan unit secondary

 

STANDBY FAILOVER CONFIG

failover
failover lan unit secondary
failover lan interface FAIL-OVER GigabitEthernet0/6
failover interface-policy 50%
failover key *****
failover link FAIL-OVER GigabitEthernet0/6
failover interface ip FAIL-OVER 172.22.36.252 255.255.255.0 standby 172.22.36.251
