Convert active/active to active/standby Firewalls

L1 Bithead

I have active/active scenario PA-220 FW. FW1 has diffident  config than FW2. I want to make FW1 is the active without loosing any data. 


Do I need to erase or do factory reset for FW2 before I sync it from FW1 which is the main configuration that I want to keep?

@EnsanOdeh Some configuration items do not sync, but apart from that, both firewalls should have the same configuration , regardless of if they are in A/A orA/P HA mode. If they don't you can force config sync  from the firewall you think is most up to date to the other.
