Failover Hardware compatibility

Hi,

I have two ASA 5510, The one which I just got shows the CPU speed to be 1599MHz

While the previous device (which is also 5510) reads the CPU as 1600MHz

According to Cisco, for Failover redundant configuration, both devices must have same hardware configuration.

Technically, this slight difference should not be an issue but I need to confirm that thess devices will work fine with failover configuration.

At the same time I would like to know, why this difference is happens.

Appreciate your support.

Failover Hardware compatibility

A pair of 5510s will be able to  creae a failover pair as long as you have the same installed memory and software revision and hook up the interfaces per the design guide.

I'm not sure why one would report 1599 and the other 1600 Mhz. I suspect a minor hardware (or possibly firmware) revision that causes this primarily cosmetic difference. I would be confident in setting them up as a failover pair.
