I have a Pix 515E active/failover IOS v7.2 The failover process works perfect. I test powering down one unit, and then the other en works perfect. But, as soon as I do "write stanby" in the active unit, the passive unit goes down (the insde interface). I remember that one time the ASDM aske something about a "peer" while trying to configure the failover. What is that? why goes down? Thanks in advanced.
My PIX has 6 interfaces, 5 for traffic and 1 for failover. I gues, I cannot use a dedicated interface for managemente only. Is there any other solution? What if I try doing the "write stand" by console? Would I have the same problem? Thanks.
I encountered the same problem with ASA version 7.2. Upgrading to the latest interim release fixed the problem but then caused a worse problem, so waited until Cisco released a more stable version. It appears version 7.2 has a few bugs referring to failover/standby. You could always try upgrading to version 7.3.
Nevertheless, there is no need to issue the "write standby" command because configs are sync'd whenever the "write mem" command is submitted.
