CCNP Security Question of the Week

The command that can be used on the standby firewall to force control back, making that firewall become active is?

  1. failover preempt
  2. reset failover
  3. failover primary
  4. failover active


The correct answer is 4.

Use the failover active command when you need to force the current unit into the active state. This need can occur in a situation such as when you want to switch control back from a unit after you have fixed a problem and want to restore service to the current standby unit.
