Known Affected Releases

9.1(3) 9.1(3.4)

Description (partial)

When attempting to configure IPSec encryption on your failover link with the command "failover ipsec pre-shared-key" it errors out with:

ERROR: Could not create failover IPSec tunnel for stateful link

The configuration does not get added to the device, and the IPSec encryption is not attempted or used.

Non-stateful failover pair (ie: no "failover link" defined in configuration) or a platform that doesn't support stateful failover like the ASA 5505.
