PIX PIX-515E need to failover on primary box

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_configuration_example09186a00807dac5f.shtml

Just plug the new box to network; connect cables like what the old box had and follow the commands said in the above link.

Replace the Failed Unit with a New Unit

Complete these steps in order to replace a failed unit with a new unit:

  1. Run the no failover command on the primary unit.

    The status of the secondary unit shows standby unit as not detected.

  2. Unplug the primary unit, and connect the replacement primary unit.

  3. Verify that the replacement unit runs the same software and ASDM version as the secondary unit.

  4. Run these commands on the replacement unit:

    ASA(config)#failover lan unit primary 
    ASA(config)#failover lan interface failover Ethernet3
    ASA(config)#failover interface ip failover 10.1.0.1 255.255.255.0 standby 10.1.0.2
    ASA(config)#interface Ethernet3
    ASA(config-if)#no shut 
    ASA(config-if)#exit
    
  5. Plug the replacement primary unit to the network, and run this command:

    ASA(config)#failover
