The flash activation key is the SAME as the running key.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As long as same hardware and same version of code running, you can join them back in to HA.
If you are more cautious, then take backup of current backup configuration, do this task in maintenance window.
Current Active Sec ASA is on 8.2 and has premium VPN license.
This other ASA shows it hs premium license and it has same hardware and code running.
Only concern it shows activation key does not match
can you please confirm if i can still add this ASA in HA pair?
