To fail back to the primary unit you can either do:
on the primary, or do:
no failover active
on the secondary. Keep in mind that because a failover pair are always the same hardware, there theoretically is no advantage to running on the primary unit, and so if the units do fail over to the secondary for some reason, they will NOT fail back automatically. If for whatever reason you prefer running on the primary unit, then you have to manually fail them back using either of the above two commands.

In fact, since it failover to the secondary unit for some reason, I am fine with just running on the secondary unit as an active unit. However, I got the following message when I try to configure something on the secondary unit. Is there a way to fix this without using the "failover" command you have suggested?
