FWSM failover in context mode

Have two fwsm's in aseperate 6500 chassis running the lates leve 4.1(2).

I can not get Failover up having tried very thing.

At the moment I am seeing droped packets on the two sate interfaces but see no way of configuring any thing to allow them to work.

Any one any ideas ?

Thanks

Re: FWSM failover in context mode

Hello,

Can you please provide the following outputs?

"show run | inc firewall" from both switches

"show vlan" from both FWSMs

"show run failover" from both FWSMs

"show failover" from both FWSMs

Thanks.
