I have 2 units of Cisco PIX 515 running in failover mode now. I have disabled the failover, and have taken out the standby unit for other purpose. However, when I boot up the secondary unit in standalone, I get the following message at the console screen, and cannot proceed from there on:
=========================== NOTICE ===========================
This machine is licensed as a secondary failover unit, but lacks a connection to a fully-licensed primary PIX. The current setup is an invalid failover setup. This machine will not continue rebooting in its current state.
I know this has to be the licensing issue. I am just hoping there is a way to reset it, or convert it so that it can be operating in standalone, without upgrading the license. Any ideas? Thank you.
