Non-disruptive PWD recovery - PIX HA

My customer has a PIX 515 HA, version unknwon.  We need to do password recovery.  Am I right in saying that the following sequence will work?

Reboot standby, determine SW version from console

Verify standby is operational after reboot

Download correct utility

Perform recovery procedure on the active box

Once active box is recovered, verify config sync to standby

If I understand PIX HA correctly, I think the standby box should take over during the recovery procedure.  Am I missing anything?

Many thanks

I would fail it over manually before doing the recovery to make sure the standby comes online as active and you can verify it. Otherwise, I don't see a problem with the logic.....
