Firewall failover

Dear all,

If I have 2 UR licenses for primary Firewall, can I make one of them as Failover.

TIA

Re: Firewall failover

yes. you just need to designate one of them as standby in the config if you are doing lan based failover

HTH

Re: Firewall failover

Thanks Justin,

I will make the other as standby and test them if it works fine. Is there any special configs for that or same as usual.

Re: Firewall failover

The configs should be the same as if the second pix was failover only. The following link from cisco will aid you in the config of a lan. The biggest thing to keep in mind is that the two pix must be identical

Re: Firewall failover

Hi Faiz,

if you have two UR license firewall, you can

run them in Active/Active if you like.

If you decide to make it Active/Standby, get

a FO firewall, it is much cheaper. But

Active/Standby configuration will work with

both UR firewalls but you're wasting your money.
