Failover problem with Firewall Service Modul (FWSM) Catalyst 6500

Threaded View


I have set up two FWSM in Active/Standby Failover with Stateful Failover
and State Link in multiple context mode.
When I enable failover, the active unit sends the configuration in
running memory to the standby FWSM. Now my problem: all dhcp-server
commands beginning with dhcpd address ... and dhcpd enable ... are not
copied. If I force the standby unit to become active then DHCP-Server
and DHCP-Relay are not working!!! Anyway, DHCP-Relay commands have been
copied.
Even when I enter the dhcp commands again, the DHCP-Server and
DHCP-Relay still do not work.

Has anybody an idea how to solve the problem?

The switches run IOS 12.2.33-SXI3 and the FWSM version 4.0(11).

Many thanks
Andreas
