On-Site Spare using

Good day, dear colleagues! We bought two PA-220 and two PA-220 on-site spares. Total we have 4 firewalls - 2 main and 2 on-site spare. But we installed 1 main device and 1 spare. Could this be a problem in the future? Or from the vendor's side these are 4 identical devices? All firewalls was pre-activated. Thank you for a help!

Re: On-Site Spare using

how are the 2 devices being displayed on the support portal?

if the spare is being displayed on the support portal as a -SSO device, you should not be able to activate licences on it, which in turn will cause it to function normally for all regular traffic and app-id, but not for threatprevention, url filtering or wildfire, so you will need to swap that one out
