Re: PIX 515 E FAILOVER Bundle issue- urgent help needed

Hi Binoy,

I see from your configuration that failover is disabled, so you need to enable it by applying the following config on the primary unit but before you apply them make sure the failover cable is connected properly b/ the 2 units:

failover

failover ip address outside 172.16.1.2 255.255.255.0 (Change the address if it's used somewhere else)

failover ip address inside

192.168.1.6 255.255.255.0 (Change the address if it's used somewhere else)

wr mem

wr standby

run:show failover and look at the summary

Finally, it's better to go to the secondary and do "wr mem".

The configuration above will provide you with configuration replication and failover only, if you want stateful failover then you need to dedicate an interface between the 2 firewalls and do further configuration to define that interface and configure it.

Hope this helps,

Hi Binoy,

You shouldn't apply the same config on the FO bundle unit.. All what you need to do is to connect the FO cable between the 2 units and apply the FO configurations as I suggested then turn on the FO unit which will syncronize the config with the primary.

Once the syncronization is complete, you should be able to ping the secondary unit on the addresses you assigned to it with your failover configuration commands.

HTH,

Re: PIX 515 E FAILOVER Bundle issue- urgent help needed

hi haitham,

my issue is rt now its not connected as a FO unit,

as a stand alone unit it's not pinging with the above configuration.

just forget abt the failover, as a singler unit it's not working not pinging at all. pls verify the above configuration.

Re: PIX 515 E FAILOVER Bundle issue- urgent help needed

It is a FailOver Unit not a Normal Unit. A failover license will not work as a standalone firewall, unless it is connected to a firewall that has a UR license that has failed, and the UR license firewall is configured to failover to the FO licensed firewall.

AFAIK the FO license will not allow this unit to act as a standalone.
