PIX Firewall Error Message

Hello,

Getting this message on one of our firewalls.

Mate's license (0 Contexts) is not compatible with my license (2 Context

s). Failover will be disabled.

Can anyone help with this please ?.

Regards

Scott.

Re: PIX Firewall Error Message

Failover requires that the two devices are EXACTLY the same HW and that they have the same License features. One of your devices has a 2 context license, and the other has 0. Actually this is a little strange cause I thought they all came with 2 contexts as minimum, are you sure you're not running 7.0 on one and 6.3 on the other? If so make sure they run the exact same code.

You can see what license features your PIX has with the "sho ver" output. You can apply for a new license at licensing@cisco.com, but depending on what you want it may incur an additional fee (although 2 contexts should be free).
