I'm trying to set up Cicso asa csc-ssm-10 modules for failover, and see the following messasge, when setup is complete and after system failover has been enabled:
InterScan for CSC SSM could not establish a connection. The software, hardware, and patch version on the peer devices must match. Please reconcile the mismatch that was detected and try again.
What could be the issue?
Sadly I have no knowledge of the actual modules that the ASA use since we dont use them in our environments.
But the main thing about any ASA Failover pair is that they should be identical in every way down to the software levels.
The above error message to me atleast clearly suggest that there is some missmatch between the devices. That would be the first thing to check.
Yes, Jouni you are absolutely right, both devices should be Identical from hardware, software and licensing perspectives here are the output from show module 1 details command from both devices
ciscoasa# show module 1 details
Getting details from the Service Module, please wait...
