I have 2 ASA 5510's in and Active/Standby setup.  The failover works great, but I'd like to get a notification when a failover occurs so I'm aware of it.  What is the best way to accomplish this?

enable syslogs and you can specify certain syslog messages to be sent to your email.. check this configuration: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_configuration_example09186a00807dac5f.shtml#emailalert

Thanks for this info.

Do I have to do anything to enable syslogs first or just setup the mail notifications like the example?  

Also, the command "logging mail high-priority" doesn't work.  It wants me to enter the specific severity level instead of "high-priority".  Do you know which one corresponds to a failover event?
