FWSM failover 6500

Advertisement
Hi Folks,
Firstly is this the right forum to post threads about FWSM's. We have 2 FWSM's in two seperate 6500 switches. There are a number of contexts on each FWSM.
I want to fail a context from one FWSM over to the other 6500 and FWSM. Can you tell me how I can do that? Do I need to do it in the admin context and do I need to do it on the admin context of each 6500?
Thanks,
Netter

Hi Jennifer,
Great, yes we have a group 1 and a group 2 and some contexts live on each 6500. I cannot failover the whole group as its operational and I just want to failover the test context I am working on.
So I will have to move the context from one failover group to the next as you suggested. What is the best way to do this? Which admin context do I change it on first or does it matter? Should I change it on the context where it is currently live and then hop on the other 6500 and change it there?
do I need to do a no command first like this?
no join-failover-group 2
then
join-failover-group 1
on both admin contexts.
