Cisco PIX failover

Hello

i am using cisco Pix 515 with UR and i want to configure failover on it for that i have procured two PIX 515 with same hardware and software config and Failover is working between them very nice i.e. once the first active unit fails the secondary usint takes over. Now i have aquery i.e. when the active (the first usnit which went down) turns up; It doesnt regain its status as master unles and until i turn the secondary unit off and after rebooting give "failover active " command.

  How can i get the master usnit to regain its state automatically when the failover happes and the master unit is ready aftrewards?

Need help

Regards

samir.

According to
http://www.ciscopress.com/articles/article.asp?p=24686

under the "Fail Back" section,

"Fail back to the primary unit is not automatically forced, as there is no reason to switch active and standby roles."

Manually entering "failover active" looks like the only way, by design.

Panadmin is correct. There is no facility to automatically fail back, and there is no logical reason to do so.
