Its simple, you have reboot with console connect, get into to ROM mode and change configuration registry so it will not load the saved configuration. Please refer Resetting the passwords on Cisco ASA 5510 Binary Royale Ltd for the step by step process

Failover best option required..

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 may be too much active/active may be the better solution.

ASA5510 Active/Standby Not Working

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.

Asa 5505 firewall problem

PPPoE is not supported when failover is configured on the security appliance, or in multiple context or transparent mode. PPPoE is only supported in single, routed mode, without failover.
