SCS-SSM-10 failover - could not establish a connection

Hi,

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?

SCS-SSM-10 failover - could not establish a connection

Hi,

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.
