You would need the Security Plus license to enable failover (Active-Standby) on the ASA 5512 platform. 

For the FirePOWER modules, you will need TAMC (or TA or TAM - depending on which of the three feature sets you want) licenses for both modules.

The modules have no concept of HA between them - each is configured and licensed separately (or optionally configured as part of a group in an off-box FirePOWER Manager).

Thanks a lot Marvin;

please I have another question;

are ASA 5512 and ASA 5512-X the same ?

do Security Plus license is provided with it by default or should I buy it separetly.

thanks.

The Cisco ordering SKU is "ASA5512-K9" (for example - there are a few other minor variations). That includes the ASA 5512-X appliance.

The Security Plus license is NOT included by default on the 5512 (and smaller platforms) and must be specified in the order (or ordered separately later).

If specified in the order, the sub-line item is "ASA5512-SEC-PL". If ordered separately it is "L-ASA5512-SEC-PL=".

thank you for your help
