Cisco ASA 5510 Active/Standby Configuration

I have configured many Cisco ASA Active/Standby pairs in the past, but I am having problems on the latest one.  I configured two ASA5510's in Active Standby, I did a "no failover active" on the Active ASA to make the secondary ASA Active.  I did this just to test functionality.  When the secondary ASA is active, we notice problems.  Pings to to the internet randomly drop, site to site VPNs drop some pings over the tunnel, and the users can notice it.  If I make the primary ASA active again, things are perfect.  No ping drops to the internet or over VPN's.  I'm not sure what could be causing, any ideas?

First thing I'd check is cabling, and then duplex/port settings on all of the interfaces.
It should be not a dual WAN scenario, right?

"show failover state"

To check for the configuration sync status on both active and standby node.

"show failover"

To check for the overall failover status

Draft a physical connection diagram for us to understand your topology.

"debug fover" may require for further troubleshooting

It ended up being a bad cable.  I replaced the cable, failed it over about 10 times and had no problems.  Thanks.
