I am having problems getting failover to work.
I have One PIX 515e UR and one PIX 515e restricted. Both are running 7.0(1). I configured the UR PIX and everything is running well for a year now. I purchased a second restricted PIX. I connected the cable between the two firewalls, then enabled failover on the primary, and then booted up the second pix after cabling everyting.
Did I miss something? It will not failover.
