Changing FWSM mode from single to multiple

Hi all,

customer has a FWSM configured in single mode with failover in production.

We need to change to mode multiple: I have some questions:

1) I see from docs that, when insert command "mode multiple", running config is copied to a file and seems that, after reload, FWSM starts with the same config as before, but copied into context admin: is it right? What about the failover one: do I have to insert the same command on failover, and reboot in the same moment or it's better to shut it down, convert the active one, change mode on failover "offline" and that put it back on line (and hope it synchronize with the active?)

2) with the standard license I can create 3 contexts (admin + 2 contexts) or 2 contexts (admin + 1 context), because the first one is the system one?

Thanks a lot.

Best Regards
