ASA 5540 failover problem

Hi,

I've got a headache with the failover of 2 asa 5540 in master/standby configuration. I've already 2x 5520 in master/stanby and they are working OK.

The command sh fail on the 5540s shows:

Failover On

Failover unit Primary

Failover LAN Interface: failover GigabitEthernet0/2 (up)

On the secondary's console there's always comming out this message:

Changed ports and cables on switches and no luck.

Any suggestion please?

Thanks
