Re: [fw-wiz] PIX failover disable help

Yes, you should disable failover first.

no failover
no failover ip address inside 10.1.1.11
no failover ip address DMZvlan1 10.0.0.2
no failover ip address DMZvlan2 10.0.2.2
no failover ip address outside 68.254.130.243
no failover ip address fover PIX2-fover
no failover link fover

show failover

Once failover is disabled, the polling stops. Now you can shut down
interfaces, or disconnect them.

I have a pix stateful failover(6.3) set up in active/standby mode. Now i
just want to shut down an interface on the failover and bring back it to
unused state. Now i'm worried if by giving a shut on the interface on the
active pix would affect the standby and would drive them to panic.

As per the document i'm thinking of to disable the failover first and shut
the interface on pri and then sec and after that would enable back the
failover again. Would that be fine or it would still affect and make a
switch over.

My concern is if we disable the failover the 2 pixes would poll using the
other ethernet interfaces to check they are up. And if i shut down an int,
would that make the pix to failover and standby to active?

Could you please tell me a safe way so that i could rid of it without
affecting any live traffic?[/B]
