Cannot tftp from stanby FWSM

I was about to upgrade my FW pair from 3.1.2 to 3.2.6 and, as a rule, I'm supposed to upgrade the Secondary first, however, I cannot ping anything nor tftp anything from the secondary. I feel like I'm missing something very basic.

Any Ideas?

routing.

this was my problem with the standby firewall (PIX/ASA) whenever trying to use tftp. unless you're using static routes and the tftp server is not on the same subnet as the fwsm, you may have to add a static route pointing to the tftp server - add it to the primary so it replicates to the secondary.
