Replication of Admin context

Hi

I upgraded failover pair of ACE30 modules.

There is this steps in UPGRADE GUIDE

Step 8

Configure ACE-1 to autoboot from the latest ACE image. To set the boot variable and configuration register to1 (perform auto boot and use startup-config file), use the

boot system image:

and

config-register

commands in configuration mode. For example, enter:

ACE-1/Admin(config)# boot system image:c6ace-t1k9-mz.A5_2_0.bin 

ACE-1/Admin(config)# config-register 1

ACE-1/Admin(config)# exit

ACE-1/Admin# show bootvar

BOOT variable = "image:c6ace-t1k9-mz.A5_2_0.bin"

Configuration register is 1

Step 9 On the standby ACE module (ACE-2), perform the following:

Enter the show running-config command and ensure that all the changes made in the active ACE (ACE-1) are also reflected on the standby ACE.

Enter the show bootvar command to verify that the boot variable was synchronized with ACE-1.

But my experience is that replication between Admin context does not work.

I must to change boot variable on both Admin contexts.

Is it OK?

Peter

Peter,

It should do it as described here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/services_modules/ace/vA5_1_x/release/note/ACE_mod_rn_A51x.html#wp791479

What version do you run?

You need to make sure you have certs, keys, licenses, etc in the same way on both.

You can force the synchronization with:

host1/Admin(config)# no ft auto-sync running-config

host1/Admin(config)# no ft auto-sync startup-config
host1/Admin(config)# ft auto-sync running-config

host1/Admin(config)# ft auto-sync startup-config
