Can you help me with my software licensing question?
Last weekend we tryed to cluster two ASA5510 in an active / Standby szenario. Unfortunatelly it failed, because one ASA has an CSC ASA-SSM-CSC-10-K9= (+ Secplus and 250user license) module installed, the other ASA doesn't have.
We tryed it with 8.2(5) and also with 8.4 release, both trys failed "hardware blabla CSC"
So the question now is, if we buy another ASA-SSM-CSC-10-K9= Module for the standby appliance, does this module also need an equivalent amount of licenses -> Secplus and 250user license or is only the hardware required and the license move during a failover.
We prefer pre 8.3 release, because of the crappy NAT syntax, but i guess that the license merging/moving is only possible with 8.3+ releases, can someone confirm that?
