I have a pair of aip ssc-5's that needs to be installed in a pair of failover pair of 5505's. I wonder what the right process is, minimizing downtime. Will there be problems if I take the passive node down, install the aip ssc-5 and boot it up, because they are not identical hardware wise?
I also wonder if the configuration of the modules will be replicated, or if it will have to be manually configured identical.
I think the failover pair will not reestablish correctly when you install the SSC-5 in the standby unit as the hardware will no longer be identical. (Though I've never tried it with AIP modules per se.)
Re configuration, only the firewall service policy rules directing traffic to the module is replicated. Any configuration of the IPS itself must be done separately on each module.
