Query for failover in PIX firewall

The output does show that the device to which you connect was originally configured to act as primary and is currently acting as standby. As such any config change that you make on this device would not sync to the other PIX.

There are two alternatives that you could use:

- you could connect to the other PIX and make the config change on it. Then the config change would sync to both PIXes.

- you could fail back so that this PIX once again becomes the active one which would allow you to make the config changes on this one and have it sync to the other PIX.
