Command to show active and standby ASAs?

Hello,

I can't remember the command that shows that you are on the active or standby ASA when you log in?

The hostname will look something like:

ASA5520-1/stby>

ASA5520-1/Act>

Thanks

I think you may be thinking about the command show failover. This will inform you about whether the ASA to which you connected is active or standby.

Re: Command to show active and standby ASAs?

Hi,

I guess you mean the command "prompt"

I think the command you are looking to set is

prompt hostname state

Naturally you can use "?" after each command to find the combination that suites you. To show the info on the prompt that you want

Though I imagine that you would always be connecting to the Active unit since you connect to the Primary interface IP address and therefore you would know you are on the Active unit. Then again if you have both of the units management windows open on the CLI then I guess it would make sense. I guess you could add the parameter "priority" to the above command to show also is the unit configured as the "primary" or "secondary" and then the command would probably be in this order

prompt hostname priority state

Hope this helps
