Standalone ASA Lab setup context disabled

                   I've built a lab with two standalone ASA with no failover unit in firewall router and multiple context mode with failover active setup on each to make them act as primary and to simulate two separate Data Centers and DMZs. When I do a show failover on a context I get the message that shows the context disabled. What do I need to do make the context active on each standalone unit? 

asalab03# sho fail      

Failover Off

Failover unit Primary

Failover LAN Interface: not Configured

Unit Poll frequency 1 seconds, holdtime 15 seconds

Interface Poll frequency 15 seconds

Interface Policy 1

Monitored Interfaces 0 of 250 maximum

asalab03# changeto con C

asalab03/C# sho fail

Failover Off

Last Failover at: 12:56:49 UTC May 18 2012

        This context: Disabled

                Active time: 0 (sec)

Have you already assigned a  context to one of the failover groups?

hostname(config)#failover group 1

hostname(config-fover-group)#primary

hostname(config-fover-group)#exit

hostname(config)#failover group 2

hostname(config-fover-group)#secondary

hostname(config-fover-group)#exit

hostname(config)#context context_name

hostname(config-context)#join-failover-group {1 | 2}

hostname(config-context)#exit

You can share the configuration if this step is already done.

Regards.
