Guidelines and Limitations
This section includes the guidelines and limitations for this feature.
Context Mode Guidelines
Supported in single mode and within a context in multiple context mode. This wizard is not supported in the System.

Startup Wizard Screens
The actual sequence of screens is determined by your specified configuration selections. Each screen is available for all modes or models unless otherwise noted. This section includes the following topics:
To change the existing configuration, click the
Modify existing configuration
To set the configuration to the factory default values, click the
Reset configuration to factory defaults
– To configure the IP address and subnet mask of the Management 0/0 (ASA 5510 and higher) or VLAN 1 (ASA 5505) interface to be different from the default value (192.168.1.1), check the
Configure the IP address of the management interface
Note If you reset the configuration to factory defaults, you cannot undo these changes by clicking Cancel or by closing this screen.
In multiple context mode, this screen does not contain any parameters.
This screen lets you group the eight, Fast Ethernet switch ports on the ASA 5505 into three VLANs. These VLANs function as separate, Layer 3 networks. You can then choose or create the VLANs that define your network—one for each interface: Outside, Inside, or DMZ (DMZ is available in routed mode only). A DMZ is a separate network located in the neutral zone between a private (inside) network and a public (outside) network.
If you have an IPS module, you can check the
Enable Signature and Engine Updates from Cisco.com
check box. Set the following additional parameters:
– Enter your Cisco.com username and password, and then confirm the password.
– Enter the start time in hh:mm:ss format, using a 24-hour clock.
Note For the ASA 5505, to access this screen, you must have checked the Configure the device for Teleworker usage check box in Basic Configuration.

We introduced the Wizards > Startup Wizard screen.
For the IPS module, the IPS Basic Configuration screen was added to the startup wizard. Signature updates for the IPS module were also added to the Auto Update screen. The Time Zone and Clock Configuration screen was added to ensure the clock is set on the ASA; the IPS module gets its clock from the ASA.
