Firepower Management Centre HA Configuration

This probably has a really simple answer but....

I have two physical FS2000 appliances - both have been upgraded to V6.

What I want to do is have them run in a HA pair.

I can find plenty of documentation for V5.4 on how to do this (basically go to System > Local > Registration) but this doesn't appear to exist on V6.

How do I do this in version 6?

Thanks

Giles

Hello Team,

Is it a new installation ?

If so you can reimage the FMC to any version in 5.4.1.x.

Hello Team,

Version 6.0 doesnt support HA. You have to reimage or downgrade the DC to some codes in 5.4.1.x.

Ah... That would explain it.

What is the easiest way to downgrade to V5.4?

It is a new installation - no appliances have been registered - just going to take a few hours to get the boxes downgraded.

Why did the HA functionality get removed from version 6?

Thanks for your help.

Hello Team,

If its a new installation please reimage the device directly using the previous reimage link I have provided. 

Lot of new features introduced in 6.0 . Bu In 6.0 HA functionality is not supported, but later upcoming release they will add it.Refer following release notes

during "Upgrades" there are no Rollbacks!  Only on patches you will see Rollbacks.  Keep this in mind during a change window.   Re-image is the only alternative to 5.4.x and then patch up to 5.4.1.7.  And it takes several hours, and make sure you have the license.  during the re-image, retain the license and other network parameters.
