Hi I've got two ASA5510's to be installed as a failover configuration active\passive. The primary is  the following:
ASA5510-AIP10-K9 ASA 5510 Appliance with AIP-SSM-10, SW, 3FE, 3DES/AES
Secondary is:
ASA5510-BUN-K9 ASA 5510 Appliance with SW, 3FE, 3DES/AES

I'm having a problem with the failover it complains about the module, I was told this config would work by more than one cisco guy. Will this config work, or do I need to have exact matching hardware for this solution?

Unfortunately, the Cisco guys told you wrong.  You have to have IDENTICAL firewalls, down to the modules installed, the code versions, and any licensing (like for SSL VPN capability, or CSC licensing).  You'll need to either purchase another AIP-SSM-10 module to go into the second firewall or remove the existing one in order to configure failover....

Hi thanks unfortunately I had a feeling that was the case! I was told this by my supplier, I guess they should accept the module back with any luck.

Thanks again.
