Problems with config synchronisation on failover unit
Hi - I've recently swapped a PIX 515 with a failover licence for a replacement unit and since then can't get it to synchronise it's config. The licence says "This platform has a Failover Only-Active/Standby (FO) license"
and the message I get in the logs is;
Message #545 : Detected an Active mate
Message #546 : Unable to sync configuration from Active
Re: Problems with config synchronisation on failover unit
I think this is due to the PIX license that your standy PIX has. Your failover PIX has active/standby license which can't be primary when PIX is restarted. I found that you issue "failover active" command from standby PIX to activate the interface.
