PIX Failover de-activation

I have an older, decomissioned pair or 515e PIX firewalls configured in failover mode (active/passive). I now have a need to use them both in separate standalone modes, however when I try to use the PIX configured to act as the Failover secondary, it can't run on it's own because of the failover licensing. Can anyone tell me how to remove the failover licensing and just run in standalone mode?

TIA

Ken

Re: PIX Failover de-activation

You'll most likely need to purchase either a restricted or unrestricted license depending on your needs.

look under 'license options'.

Re: PIX Failover de-activation

Thanks, but what about the Active device? It was my unerstanding that that it came with an Unrestricted license. Can it run with the Failover license and disable the failover option?

Thanks again,

Re: PIX Failover de-activation

if it has an UR license, it doesn't need to be part of a failover set.
