How to reset a FWSM in Sync Config state

Hi!

I am new to this forum. I posted this information to LAN switch section. Here is my home now.

I have two 6506 switches. Each has a FWSM with ver 3.1. Two FWSMs have been configured in Active/Active failover mode. Both firewalls are in transparant mode and each firewall has three contexts.

Yesterday night I did a AAA configuration. But I was locked out by a mistake, configuring a aaa authorization with a problem. I did not reset the password. Instead I came to the primary unite, disabled the failover and removed the context which blocked me out. Then, I created same context and copied all old configuration.

However, after I removed the wrong aaa authorization command and enbling the failover, the secondary unit went to a Coma State: Sync Config.

I reboot two times of switches and the secondary firewall, but the coma state keeps same. Therefore, currently two firewalls are running on a single switch/FWSM.

My question is: how to reset this without reboot the primary FWSM?

Your suggestion, comment and help will be greatly appreciated.

Can you share the config and failover status?
