Maximum Configuration Size

ASDM supports a maximum configuration size of 512 KB. If you exceed this amount you may experience performance issues. For example, when you load the configuration, the status dialog shows the percentage of the configuration that is complete, yet with large configurations it stops incrementing and appears to suspend operation, even though ASDM might still be processing the configuration. If this situation occurs, we recommend that you consider increasing the ASDM system heap memory.

To increase the ASDM heap memory size, modify the launcher shortcut by performing the following procedure:


Step 1 Right-click the shortcut for the ASDM-IDM Launcher, and choose Properties.

Step 2 Choose the Shortcut tab.

Step 3 In the Target field, change the argument prefixed with "-Xmx" to specify your desired heap size. For example, change it to -Xmx768m for 768 MB or -Xmx1g for 1 GB. For more information about this parameter, see the Oracle document in the following location: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/tooldocs/windows/java.html

2 ASDM requires an SSL connection from the browser to the ASASM. By default, Internet Explorer on Windows Vista and later and Firefox on all operating systems do not support base encryption (DES) for SSL, and therefore require the ASASM to have a strong encryption (3DES/AES) license. For Windows Internet Explorer, you can enable DES as a workaround. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929708 for details. For Firefox on any operating system, you can enable the security.ssl3.dhe_dss_des_sha setting as a workaround. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config to learn how to change hidden configuration preferences.

3 6.4(7) and later. You may be prompted to install Java the first time you run ASDM; follow the prompts as necessary. ASDM will launch after the installation completes.


New Features

New Features in Version 6.5(1.101)/ASA 8.5(1.7)

New Features in Version 6.5(1)/ASA 8.5(1.6)

New Features in Version 6.5(1)/8.5(1)

New Features in Version 6.5(1.101)/ASA 8.5(1.7)

Released: March 5, 2012

Table 2 lists the new features for ASA interim Version 8.5(1.7)/ASDM Version 6.5(1.101).


Note We recommend that you upgrade to a Cisco.com-posted ASA interim release only if you have a specific problem that it resolves. If you decide to run an interim release in a production environment, keep in mind that only targeted testing is performed on interim releases. Interim releases are fully supported by Cisco TAC and will usually remain on the download site only until the next maintenance release is available. If you choose to run an interim release, we strongly encourage you to upgrade to a fully-tested maintenance or feature release when it becomes available.

We will document interim release features at the time of the next maintenance or feature release. For a list of resolved caveats for each ASA interim release, see the interim release notes available on the Cisco.com software download site.


Table 2 New Features for ASA Interim Version 8.5(1.7)/ASDM Version 6.5(1.101) 

Feature
Description
Hardware Features

Support for the Catalyst 6500 Supervisor 2T

The ASASM now interoperates with the Catalyst 6500 Supervisor 2T. For hardware and software compatibility, see: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/compatibility/asamatrx.html.

Note You may have to upgrade the FPD image on the ASASM. See the Upgrading procedure the in the release notes.

Multiple Context Features

ASDM support for Automatic generation of a MAC address prefix

ASDM now shows that an autogenerated prefix will be used if you do not specify one.

We modified the following screen: Configuration > Context Management > Security Contexts

Failover Features

Configure the connection replication rate during a bulk sync

You can now configure the rate at which the ASASM replicates connections to the standby unit when using stateful failover. By default, connections are replicated to the standby unit during a 15 second period. However, when a bulk sync occurs (for example, when you first enable failover), 15 seconds may not be long enough to sync large numbers of connections due to a limit on the maximum connections per second. For example, the maximum connections on the ASASM is 8 million; replicating 8 million connections in 15 seconds means creating 533K connections per second. However, the maximum connections allowed per second is 300K. You can now specify the rate of replication to be less than or equal to the maximum connections per second, and the sync period will be adjusted until all the connections are synced.

We modified the following screen: Configuration > Device Management > High Availability > Failover.


New Features in Version 6.5(1)/ASA 8.5(1.6)

Released: January 27, 2012

Table 2 lists the new features for ASA interim Version 8.5(1.6)/ASDM Version 6.5(1).


Note We recommend that you upgrade to a Cisco.com-posted ASA interim release only if you have a specific problem that it resolves. If you decide to run an interim release in a production environment, keep in mind that only targeted testing is performed on interim releases. Interim releases are fully supported by Cisco TAC and will usually remain on the download site only until the next maintenance release is available. If you choose to run an interim release, we strongly encourage you to upgrade to a fully-tested maintenance or feature release when it becomes available.

We will document interim release features at the time of the next maintenance or feature release. For a list of resolved caveats for each ASA interim release, see the interim release notes available on the Cisco.com software download site.


Table 3 New Features for ASA Interim Version 8.5(1.6)/ASDM Version 6.5(1) 

Feature
Description
Multiple Context Features

Automatic generation of a MAC address prefix

In multiple context mode, the ASASM now converts the automatic MAC address generation configuration to use a default prefix. The ASASM auto-generates the prefix based on the last two bytes of the backplane MAC address. This conversion happens automatically when you reload, or if you reenable MAC address generation. The prefix method of generation provides many benefits, including a better guarantee of unique MAC addresses on a segment. If you want to change the prefix, you can reconfigure the feature with a custom prefix. The legacy method of MAC address generation is no longer available.

Note To maintain hitless upgrade for failover pairs, the ASASM does not convert the MAC address method in an existing configuration upon a reload if failover is enabled. However, we strongly recommend that you manually change to the prefix method of generation when using failover. Without the prefix method, ASASMs installed in different slot numbers experience a MAC address change upon failover, and can experience traffic interruption. After upgrading, to use the prefix method of MAC address generation, reenable MAC address generation to use the default prefix.

ASDM was not changed.


New Features in Version 6.5(1)/8.5(1)

Released: July 8, 2011

Table 4 lists the new features for ASA Version 8.5(1)/ASDM Version 6.5(1). This ASA and ASDM software version is only supported on the ASASM.


Note Version 8.5(1) includes all features in 8.4(1), plus the features listed in this table. The following features, however, are not supported in No Payload Encryption software, and this release is only available as a No Payload Encryption release:

VPN

Unified Communications

Features added in 8.4(2) are not included in 8.5(1) unless they are explicitly listed in this table.


Table 4 New Features for ASA Version 8.5(1)/ASDM Version 6.5(1) 

Feature
Description
Hardware Features

Support for the ASA Services Module

We introduced support for the ASASM for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 E switch.

Firewall Features

Mixed firewall mode support in multiple context mode

You can set the firewall mode independently for each security context in multiple context mode, so some can run in transparent mode while others run in routed mode.

We modified the following command: firewall transparent.

You cannot set the firewall mode in ASDM; you must use the command line interface.

Interface Features

Automatic MAC address generation is now enabled by default in multiple context mode

Automatic generation of MAC addresses is now enabled by default in multiple context mode.

We modified the following screen: System > Configuration > Context Management > Security Contexts.

NAT Features

Identity NAT configurable proxy ARP and route lookup

In earlier releases for identity NAT, proxy ARP was disabled, and a route lookup was always used to determine the egress interface. You could not configure these settings. In 8.4(2) and later, the default behavior for identity NAT was changed to match the behavior of other static NAT configurations: proxy ARP is enabled, and the NAT configuration determines the egress interface (if specified) by default. You can leave these settings as is, or you can enable or disable them discretely. Note that you can now also disable proxy ARP for regular static NAT.

For pre-8.3 configurations, the migration of NAT exempt rules (the nat 0 access-list command) to 8.4(2) and later now includes the following keywords to disable proxy ARP and to use a route lookup: no-proxy-arp and route-lookup. The unidirectional keyword that was used for migrating to 8.3(2) and 8.4(1) is no longer used for migration. When upgrading to 8.4(2) from 8.3(1), 8.3(2), and 8.4(1), all identity NAT configurations will now include the no-proxy-arp and route-lookup keywords, to maintain existing functionality. The unidirectional keyword is removed.

We modified the following screens:

Configuration > Firewall > NAT Rules > Add/Edit Network Object > Advanced NAT Settings
Configuration > Firewall > NAT Rules > Add/Edit NAT Rule

Also available in Version 8.4(2).

PAT pool and round robin address assignment

You can now specify a pool of PAT addresses instead of a single address. You can also optionally enable round-robin assignment of PAT addresses instead of first using all ports on a PAT address before using the next address in the pool. These features help prevent a large number of connections from a single PAT address from appearing to be part of a DoS attack and makes configuration of large numbers of PAT addresses easy.

Note Currently in 8.5(1), the PAT pool feature is not available as a fallback method for dynamic NAT or PAT. You can only configure the PAT pool as the primary method for dynamic PAT (CSCtq20634).

We modified the following screens:

Configuration > Firewall > NAT Rules > Add/Edit Network Object
Configuration > Firewall > NAT Rules > Add/Edit NAT Rule

Also available in Version 8.4(2).

Switch Integration Features

Autostate

The switch supervisor engine can send autostate messages to the ASASM about the status of physical interfaces associated with ASASM VLANs. For example, when all physical interfaces associated with a VLAN go down, the autostate message tells the ASASM that the VLAN is down. This information lets the ASASM declare the VLAN as down, bypassing the interface monitoring tests normally required for determining which side suffered a link failure. Autostate messaging provides a dramatic improvement in the time the ASASM takes to detect a link failure (a few milliseconds as compared to up to 45 seconds without autostate support).

Note The switch supports autostate messaging only if you install a single ASASM in the chassis.

See the following Cisco IOS command: firewall autostate.

Virtual Switching System

The ASASM supports VSS when configured on the switches. No ASASM configuration is required.


Upgrading the Software


Note For users migrating from the FWSM, see Migrating to the Cisco ASA Services Module from the FWSM.


This section describes how to upgrade to the latest version of the ASA image or the Field-Programmable Device (FPD) image and includes the following topics:

Upgrading the ASA Image

Upgrading the FPD Image

Upgrading the ASASM from the Supervisor 720 to the Supervisor 2T


Note For CLI procedures, see the ASA release notes.


Upgrading the ASA Image

Viewing Your Current Version

Upgrading the Operating System and ASDM Images

Viewing Your Current Version

The software version appears on the ASDM home page; view the home page to verify the software version of your ASASM.

Upgrading the Operating System and ASDM Images

This section describes how to install the ASDM and operating system (OS) images.

We recommend that you upgrade the ASDM image before the OS image. ASDM is backward compatible, so you can upgrade the OS using the new ASDM; however you cannot use an old ASDM image with a new OS.


Detailed Steps


Step 1 Back up your existing configuration. For example, choose File > Show Running Configuration in New Window to open the configuration as an HTML page. You can also use one of the File > Save Running Configuration options.

Step 2 Choose Tools > Check for ASA/ASDM Updates.

In multiple context mode, access this menu from the System.

The Cisco.com Authentication dialog box appears.

Step 3 Enter your assigned Cisco.com username and the Cisco.com password, and then click Login.

The Cisco.com Upgrade Wizard appears.

Step 4 Complete the upgrade wizard.

Step 5 For the upgrade versions to take effect, check the Save configuration and reload device now check box to restart the ASASM and restart ASDM.

Step 6 Click Finish to exit the wizard and save the configuration changes that you made.


Upgrading the FPD Image

The ASASM includes a separate FPD image that you can upgrade using Cisco IOS software on the switch.

Deteriming if an FPD Upgrade is Required

Upgrading the Cisco IOS and FPD Image

Upgrading the FPD Image Only

Deteriming if an FPD Upgrade is Required

Determine if an FPD upgrade is required using the show hw-module all fpd IOS command on the switch.

If the ASASM has the minimum required version, no further action is necessary. If an FPD image package needs an upgrade, proceed to the next step.

The following sample output indicates that the ASASM does not meet the minimum version requirements.

Router# show hw-module all fpd
==== ====================== ====== =============================================
                             H/W   Field Programmable   Current   Min. Required
Slot Card Type               Ver.  Device: "ID-Name"    Version      Version
==== ====================== ====== ================== =========== ==============
   1 WS-SVC-ASA-SM1          1.0   1-TRISUL FPGA          1.8        1.10
==== ====================== ====== =============================================
 
   

Upgrading the Cisco IOS and FPD Image

If you need to upgrade the Cisco IOS image, you can also load a new FPD image on local flash memory (disk0: or bootdisk:) to automatically install the FPD on the ASASM when you reload the switch.

Detailed Steps


Step 1 Verify that the FPD automatic upgrade feature is enabled by examining the output of the show running-config IOS command on the switch.

Look for the "upgrade fpd auto" line in the output. If there are no upgrade commands in the output, upgrade fpd auto is enabled because it is the default setting. If automatic upgrades are disabled, use the upgrade fpd auto command to enable automatic FPD upgrades.

Step 2 If you have a Cisco.com login, you can obtain the FPD image from the following website:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=283933147&flowid=29364&softwareid=280805682&release=15.0.1-SY1&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=ED&reltype=latest

Step 3 Download the FPD image package to local flash memory on the switch.

See the switch documentation for more information about downloading files to flash memory.


Note Do not change any FPD-related settings on your system. If the default settings for the upgrade fpd path command have been changed, change the settings back to their default settings using the no form of this command.


Step 4 Obtain the Cisco IOS image from the following website:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=283933147&flowid=29364&dvdid=282804709&softwareid=280805685&release=15.0.1-SY1&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=ED&reltype=latest

See the switch documentation for information about loading the new IOS image.

Step 5 Reload the switch using the new IOS image.

When Cisco IOS boots, it searches for the FPD image package in flash. The switch updates the FPD images automatically as part of the Cisco IOS boot process.


Upgrading the FPD Image Only

If you do not need to upgrade the Cisco IOS image, you can upgrade the FPD image separately.

Restrictions

The FPD image must be in local flash memory. Remote upgrading from FTP or TFTP is not supported.

Detailed Steps


Step 1 If you have a Cisco.com login, you can obtain the FPD image from the following website:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=283933147&flowid=29364&softwareid=280805682&release=15.0.1-SY1&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=ED&reltype=latest

Step 2 Download the FPD image package to the switch flash memory. We recommend the local flash disk (disk0: or bootdisk:).

See the switch documentation for more information about downloading files to flash memory.

Step 3 Verify the contents of the FPD image package using the following command:

Router# show upgrade fpd file file-url
 
   

The file-url argument is the location and name of the FPD image package file. For example, the following command successfully verifies the image (see the TRIFECTA card type for the ASASM):

Router# show upgrade fpd file disk0:c6500-fpd-pkg.1.10.pkg

Step 4 Upgrade the FPD using the following command:

Router# upgrade hw-module slot slot-number fpd file file-url
 
   

The slot-number argument indicates the chassis slot location of the ASASM. The file-url argument is the location and name of the FPD image package file. For example, to upgrade the ASASM in slot 2, enter the following command:

Router# upgrade hw-module slot 2 fpd file disk0:c6500-fpd-pkg.1.10.pkg
 
   
% The following FPD will be upgraded for WS-SVC-ASA-SM1 (H/W ver = 1.0) in slot 2:
 
   
 ================== =========== =========== ============

 ================== =========== =========== ============ 
 
   
% NOTES:
  - Use 'show upgrade fpd progress' command to view the progress of the FPD
    upgrade.
   - Since the target card is currently in disabled state, it will be 
     automatically reloaded after the upgrade operation for the changes to 
     take effect.
 
   
WARNING: The target card will be reloaded in order to start FPD image 
         upgrade. This action will interrupt normal operation of the card.
         If necessary, ensure that appropriate actions have been taken to 
         redirect card traffic before starting the upgrade operation.
 
   
% Are you sure that you want to perform this operation? [no]: yes
% Reloading the target card for FPD image upgrade ... Done!
% Upgrade operation will start in the background once the target card gets 
  initialized after the reload operation. Please wait ...
  (Use "show upgrade fpd progress" command to see upgrade progress)
 
   

Step 5 Verify that the FPD upgrade is complete using the following command:

Router# show upgrade fpd progress
 
   

The following example shows that the FPD upgrade is updating:

Router# show upgrade fpd progress
 
   
FPD Image Upgrade Progress Table:
 
   
 ==== =================== ====================================================
                                               Approx.

 ==== =================== ====================================================
 
   

The following example shows that the FPD upgrade is complete, because the upgrade is no longer in progress:

Router# show upgrade fpd progress
 
   
% There is no FPD image upgrade in progress.
 
   

Step 6 Verify that the FPD upgrade was successful using the following command:

Router# show hw-module all fpd
 
   

Upgrading the ASASM from the Supervisor 720 to the Supervisor 2T

To upgrade the ASASM from the Supervisor 720 to the Supervisor 2T, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Upgrade the ASASM with the Supervisor 2T image while the Supervisor 720 image is still loaded on the Catalyst 65000 Series E Switch.


Note If you replace the supervisor card on the Catalyst 65000 Series E Switch before you upgrade the ASASM, then the interfaces on the ASASM will not be recognized, and you will not be able to load a new image.


Step 2 Change the supervisor card from the Supervisor 720 to the Supervisor 2T on the Catalyst 65000 Series E Switch.

Step 3 Upgrade the Catalyst 65000 Series E Switch with the Supervisor 2T image.


Unsupported Commands

ASDM supports almost all commands available for the adaptive ASASM, but ASDM ignores some commands in an existing configuration. Most of these commands can remain in your configuration; see Tools > Show Commands Ignored by ASDM on Device for more information.

This section includes the following topics:

Ignored and View-Only Commands

Effects of Unsupported Commands

Discontinuous Subnet Masks Not Supported

Interactive User Commands Not Supported by the ASDM CLI Tool

Ignored and View-Only Commands

Table 5 lists commands that ASDM supports in the configuration when added through the CLI, but that cannot be added or edited in ASDM. If ASDM ignores the command, it does not appear in the ASDM GUI at all. If the command is view-only, then it appears in the GUI, but you cannot edit it.

Effects of Unsupported Commands

If ASDM loads an existing running configuration and finds other unsupported commands, ASDM operation is unaffected. To view the unsupported commands, choose Tools > Show Commands Ignored by ASDM on Device.

Discontinuous Subnet Masks Not Supported

ASDM does not support discontinuous subnet masks such as 255.255.0.255. For example, you cannot use the following:

ip address inside 192.168.2.1 255.255.0.255
 
   

Interactive User Commands Not Supported by the ASDM CLI Tool

The ASDM CLI tool does not support interactive user commands. If you enter a CLI command that requires interactive confirmation, ASDM prompts you to enter "[yes/no]" but does not recognize your input. ASDM then times out waiting for your response.

For example:

1. Choose Tools > Command Line Interface.

2. Enter the crypto key generate rsa command.

ASDM generates the default 1024-bit RSA key.

3. Enter the crypto key generate rsa command again.

Instead of regenerating the RSA keys by overwriting the previous one, ASDM displays the following error:

Do you really want to replace them? [yes/no]:WARNING: You already have RSA 
ke0000000000000$A key
Input line must be less than 16 characters in length.
 
   
%Please answer 'yes' or 'no'.
Do you really want to replace them [yes/no]:
 
   
%ERROR: Timed out waiting for a response.
ERROR: Failed to create new RSA keys names <Default-RSA-key>
 
   

Workaround:

You can configure most commands that require user interaction by means of the ASDM panes.

For CLI commands that have a noconfirm option, use this option when entering the CLI command. For example:

crypto key generate rsa noconfirm
