ASA manual failover

I have a pair of 5520s in production. Due to a licensing mismatch the HA was disabled recently. Until I get that resolved, is there a way to do a manual failover somehow in the event that the primary ASA dies? i looked for a link to some docs but didn't have any success.

Re: ASA manual failover

failover active - this commands makes the appliance on which this command is entered the active unit

no failover active - this command would be entered on the active unit, reassigning it as the secondary unit

If you do this through a telnet/ssh session, you will be disconnected from your session as IP changes take effect.

Re: ASA manual failover

Ok, so my external interface on the primary is xxx.xxx.xxx.100, and the secondary unit is xxx.xxx.xxx.200. When I do the command(s) you state above, does the secondary then become 100 or does it stay 200? Curious as it relates to vpn connections terminating at xxx.xxx.xxx.100.
