Panorama HA auth-key

Within License Managers the Bootstrap Parameters, should Panorama in HA have only one auth-key (the same on both Panorama's).

Panorama is in Active/Passive setup and auth-key either needs to be the same or else there must be a way of specifying more than one in the initcfg.exe?

bootstrapping is only performed by the active primary, so the same auth key

good, so wondering why the bootstrap auth-key code within License Managers is different between the Active and Passive Panorama?

This causes new firewalls not to register to Panorama when the Primary/Active is down
