I just installed a second C5210 this morning in an availability pair. I *think* I am done. I went through the user guide and checked that the VNS's were showing as "syncrhonized". And when I look at a report, it appears okay.
However - is it normal for the secondary controller to be completely offline when it's in standby mode? If I go through the wizard and set up availability, it succeeds. And while it is synchronizing everything, I can ping the secondary. But as soon as it's done the pings drop. I am guessing this is to keep the controllers from trying to reach it.
But then, how can I get into it when I need to? Such as when performing a software upgrade?
Also it appears to be unlicensed and in permanent demo mode. Is that also normal? Or do I need to install all my licences onto my secondary unit as well? Of course, I am only able to see that because I am connected via the Admin/management port. And perhaps I am just being nosy and should leave it alone.
