Hi all,

I too am looking for an answer to this; running 2x 5520's in A/S and looking to purchase 750 SSL VPN licenses for the failover cluster.

Do we indeed need to purchase licenses for BOTH pieces of hardware, given that they are in a f/o pair?

Many thanks,

Tom

Yes you need the licenses for both. As far as active active goes that requires multiple context mode to work. I know that multiple context mode doesn't support VPN failover so just keep that in mind.

Also active active failover is not supported on the 5510 only active standby.

Actually I was mistaken.

I have one doc that shows active/standby only for the 5510 and another that shows it is available so I apoligize about that. You do need the sec plus license for that.

hi Chris,

thanks for your answer! so a/a failover is not an option anymore... but even in a/s, having to buy twice the amount of licences we need is a bit of a rip off. are you absolutely sure we need to have the extra license for both devices?

Yes, you have to buy the license for both devices.
