Failover error standby failure

marupakula

have you configured the interface statements on our secondary box and are all the interfaces patched correctly?

can you post the interface and failover configurations from both boxes

a show interface might also help

Failover error standby failure

Hi Bro

Can you kindly paste your Cisco ASA FW latest show run failover command here? Besides that, please do provide the output for debug fover rx and debug fover tx as well. This problem is easy. It's either you’ve the wrong configuration or your physical setup is wrong. Before I move into the physical setup, let’s do this configuration verification for now. No worries, I'll help you :-)

Warm regards, Ramraj Sivagnanam Sivajanam Technical Specialist/Service Delivery Manager – Managed Service Department
