    I have set up two FWSM in Active/Standby Failover with Stateful Failover
    and State Link in multiple context mode. The switches run IOS
    12.2.33-SXI3 and the FWSM version 4.0(11). When I enable failover, the
    active unit sends the configuration to the standby FWSM. Now my problem:
    all dhcp-server commands beginning with dhcpd address ... and dhcpd
    enable ... are not copied. If I force the standby unit to become active
    then DHCP-Server and DHCP-Relay are not working!!! Anyway, DHCP-Relay
    commands have been copied. Even when I enter the dhcp commands again,
    the DHCP-Server and DHCP-Relay still do not work.
    If I force the primary unit to become active then DHCP-Server and
    DHCP-Relay are working again.

    Has anybody an idea how to solve the problem?

    Many thanks
