PIX 7.0 failover

Two Pix, running 7.0.

Primary is running UR active/active license, Secondary is running FO active/standby only license.

Both of box cann't talk to each other. and keep complain" remote unit license is different".

Is this caused by the active/standby onlt license on the secondary box ?

Re: PIX 7.0 failover

Hi ,

No, this wont be caused due to Primary running on UR-A/A and Secondary on FO-A/S. However, these firewalls can only be configured in Active/Standby failover setup and not Active/Active.

If you need to configure Active/Standby, and are still facing issues with licensing, please post the licensed features on both the devices.

Note: If you are trying to configure failover from ASDM HA Wizard, you might face this issue as there was a bug in ASDM. Alternate way is to configure failover manually via CLI or ASDM.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Vibhor.

Re: PIX 7.0 failover

Actually, i didn't use ASDM to configure instead i use CLI.

Also i configured the peer with active/standby instead of active/active.

please find the following for the license output.

Re: PIX 7.0 failover

Thanks for the outputs. The difference is with "VPN-3DES-AES" license. Notice that this is disabled on Primary but enabled on Secondary PIX:

Primary-

VPN-3DES-AES : Disabled

Secondary-

VPN-3DES-AES : Enabled

This is a free license, all you need to do is fill up a form on following link and register your Primary PIX:

https://tools.cisco.com/SWIFT/Licensing/PrivateRegistrationServlet

Once you get the activation-key, you may install it using the "activation-key" command from config mode.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Vibhor.
