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.
Firewall Mode Guidelines
Supported in routed and transparent firewall modes.
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 radio button.
To set the configuration to the factory default values, click the Reset configuration to factory defaults radio button.
– 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 check box.
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.
In single context mode, you can use the Startup Wizard in ASDM to configure basic IPS network configuration. These settings are saved to the IPS configuration, not the ASA configuration. See the “Configuring Basic IPS Module Network Settings” section in the firewall configuration guide.
ASA CX Basic Configuration (ASA 5585-X)
You can use the Startup Wizard in ASDM to configure the ASA CX management address and Auth Proxy Port. These settings are saved to the ASA CX configuration, not the ASA configuration. Note : You will also need to set additional network settings at the ASA CX CLI. See the “(ASA 5585-X) Changing the ASA CX Management IP Address” section in the firewall configuration guide for information about this screen.
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.
NoteFor the ASA 5505, to access this screen, you must have checked theConfigure the device for Teleworker usage check box in Basic Configuration.
Startup Wizard Summary
This screen summarizes all of the configuration settings that you have made for the ASA.
To change any of the settings in previous screens, click Back.
Choose one of the following:
– If you ran the Startup Wizard directly from a browser, when you click Finish , the configuration settings that you created through the wizard are sent to the ASA and saved in flash memory automatically.
– If you ran the Startup Wizard from within ASDM, you must explicitly save the configuration in flash memory by choosing File > Save Running Configuration to Flash .

Table 7-1 Feature History for the Startup Wizard
This feature was introduced.
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.
