PIX warnning

this is the third time that i send this message without to solve my problem. i will reDesribe my problem:

i has installed 2 pix 525 UR et 525 FO using the mode actif passif with failover cable. the two unit shows the message:

WARNING, missing ip or failover address on off interface

WARNING, missing ip or failover address on inside interface

WARNING, missing ip or failover address on outside interface

NB the mode of Failover used isnot statefull. ie didn't use commands like: failover ip address outside ....

thinks very match

Re: PIX warnning

You must configure an IP address on both the actual interface and the failover interface for every active interface in the PIX, using the following two commands:

ip address

failover ip address

You need these two commands for each active interface. This does not configure stateful failover as you've suggested, it simply configures failover. If you want stateful failover then you need to use the additional command:

failover link

If you haven't configured any "failover ip address" commands then you're missing the basic fundamentals of configuring failover, and this is what the PIX is telling you.

Try reading for a good understanding of how it works and how to configure it.
