ASA failover

Hi,

We experience an automatic failover from our Cisco ASA, our standby just went active without any changes on the config and problems on our network. We are not able to get some logs during the failover. From the output below, I would like to seek for any help if there is something wrong on the ASA ASA5585-SSP-10 8.2(5) during the automatic failover we encountered.

below is part of show tech output.

ASA failover

It looks normal. The "show failover history" section of "show tech" will show all of the details of the steps an HA pair cycles through to reach its final state.

The more useful command to check current status is "show failover"
