I have a pair of PIX 515e's in a failover configuration using the failover cable. I have simulated a power failure on the primary device and the secondary device kicks in straight away - exactly as it is supposed to!
My question is, if the primary device fails big then time the seconday device will kick in and the users will continue to work. If the primary device needs to be replaced with another unit, how do you re-introduce a new 'primary' unit back into a failover pair? Do you need to reverse the failover cable so that the primary device is the original seconday and copy the config from the secondary back to the primary? Is there a command to enter on the seconday to copy the config back to the new primary?
Replication occurs from the active to the stanby. Since the secondary is active introducing a new pix should cause the config to transfer. If it does not use the write standby on the active which manually writes the config to the standby.
If that doesn't work you can always save the config from the active pix and upload that to the new pix
