initially I have configured this failover quite well, and tested it enough. after that I had to switch off standby unit for some time and now as I have switch on it again my failover is not working anymore..
when i login to secondary ASA while is just reloaded, it shows following messsage:
Cryptochecksum (unchanged): 59e3f12d 768bc119 32070d9b 6acb7029 Type help or '?' for a list of available commands. ciscoasa> .

I seem to be clueless now as to why it not working anymore..I really appreciate your comments.
following is my asa failover status.

This is a old post, have you received and answer yet?
If not, make sure the internal interfaces are connected to one another and both have links. The ASA needs to have a "heartbeat" signal that passes between the 2 devices and this seems to be what's failing.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

There is a switch attached to the gearbox which activates the reversing lamps when you place the gearbox into reverse. This switch has two wires going to it, one wire is an ignition live feed and the other is the feed to the rear lamps. This switch is usually on the side of the gearbox but quite high up towards the top of the gearbox. You can remove this switch with no danger of losing gearbox oil and replace it. Using a test lamp (which you can buy from any auto parts store), connect the end with the clip to the body on a clean area to ensure a good electrical connection and the pointy end to each of the wires on the switch in turn. With the ignition on but the engine NOT RUNNING, one wire should be active and the other will become active when the gearbox is placed in reverse gear. If neither of the wires are active, check fuses etc. If one wire is active but the other does not become active when reverse is selected, replace the switch. If both wires do what they are supposed too, check the wiring from the switch back to the rear lamps and check for broken or disconnected wires.
The switch can be accessed from underneath the vehicle. Remember that these tests are conducted with the ignition turned on but THE ENGINE NOT RUNNING....
You can only do active/active if you're using multiple contexts. Active/active can give you some extra performance for your $ since you can pass traffic through both ASAs. Compare this to active/standby where the standby unit passes no traffic.
If you're pushing the 5510's to 80% capacity each in active/active mode, then you have one fail, now the one single ASA is oversubscribed. The oversubscription could cause connectivity issues that defeat the purpose of failover in the first place.
In the spirit of reliability go with active/standby. Seeing that you have two active core switches that would be pushing all of their traffic through a single 5510 in this case....it may be too much active/active may be the better solution.
If you want some kind of failover option so that if one Internet connection fails, the other one will take over, the best solution is to purchase a router that supports dual WAN connections and failover.
Hello , the Steps which u want to export and import configuration in Cisco ASA5510 1- connect yourself to your Cisco gateway by IP 2- Get TFTP server to your PC like( solarwind , Tftp server , ... ) any tftp download and upload program 3- now u need to copy running configuration to your pc by order #copy run tftp , then follow the steps NOTE: u should be in the same network or u need your pc and cisco box both have publick IP
4- if u want to put prepair config files to your gateway , you will need to type order #copy tftp run , then foloow the steps
If u need anything else please let us know by leave your completely request or join us with www.fixya.com
I've run into this issue with USB wireless network cards from DLink, Linksys, and Netgear. For me, the issue was with the USB ports on the PC and not having enough power for the device, the connection would stay live for a random amount of time and then all of a sudden it would die (same thing would happen when resuming from hibernation or standby). I added a PCI card with a powered USB hub in it and it solved my problem.
