Failover must have two identical PIX’s with a failover cable connected, failover feature enabled, both PIX’s running the same version of software and failover feature configured per the manual at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/iaabu/pix/pix_61/config/failover.htm

OK - You have FO-BUN box and you want to use that box standalone.

Of course, it'll work just fine as standalone except the fact that it'll reboot every 24 hours (trying to bring the control back to the main unit) - BUT that will be the violaton of the s/w licensing agreement with Cisco.

You bought that box as a failover with high discount.

The h/w is the same - the main difference is the activation key. You will need the new key for that box.

My suggestion - you should contact your local Cisco rep and he/she will be happy to provide you with some idea how you can upgrade your license.

I heard that people was able to upgrade just by paying the difference.

Some small note - I'm not speaking for Cisco. I just have some experience with them and from what I know and seen - the most important factor is the people. Talk to them and they will be glad to help you.

Hi,

That's exactly what I seen.

One of my customers had the situation when they had to RMA the main unit and run on the failover unit for several days.
