Configuration replication when "no failover" is declared
Given a pair of PIX 520's configured in a failover pair with the
RS 232 failover cable on IOS 5.1(1), if "no failover" is specifically
declared in both chassis configurations, when the secondary
is rebooted will configuration replication to the secondaary still
be attempted by the primary ?
I've got remote console access to pairs scattered at remote sites that need upgrades, but both recommended methods of sware upgrade require someone physically there to either uplug cables of power on/off. I can get down time, I need to know if I can configure each of these pairs as a standalone even
though failover cable is attached., upgrade sware, then re-pair them.
Re: Configuration replication when "no failover" is declared
I'm not sure I would try. In some versions of PIX software, if the failover cable was attached, and failover was disabled, then the PIX would automatically enable failover when the PIX booted.
Why don't you just the "copy tftp flash" command to copy the new image over to both PIXes. Once the new image is saved in flash, power off the Primary and Secondary, then Power on the Primary, wait a minute and power on the secondary. Now both are up and running the same version.
