Using CLI to Enable or Disable CSD

Enabling CSD loads the CSD configuration file (data.xml) from the flash device to the running configuration. If you transfer or replace the data.xml file, disable and then enable CSD to load the file.

You can enter the following CLI command in privileged EXEC mode to display the status of the CSD image:

show webvpn csd

EXAMPLE

F1-asa1(config)# show webvpn csd 
Secure Desktop version 3.1.0.25 is currently installed and enabled.


Note Disabling CSD does not alter the CSD configuration.


Use the CLI to enable or disable CSD as follows:


Step 1 Log in to the CLI and enter the config t command.

Step 2 Enter webvpn to access the webvpn command mode.

For example,

F1-asa1(config)# webvpn

Step 3 Enter the following command to identify the disk that contains the securedesktop_asa_<Version>.pkg file and display the name of the that file.

For example,

F1-asa1(config-webvpn)# show disk all

Using ASDM to Enable or Disable CSD

Enabling CSD loads the CSD configuration file (data.xml) from the flash device to the running configuration. If you transfer or replace the data.xml, disable and then enable CSD to load the file.

Disabling CSD does not alter the CSD configuration.

Use ASDM to enable or disable CSD as follows:


Step 1 Choose Configuration > VPN > WebVPN > CSD Setup.

The CSD Setup pane opens (Figure 2-1).

Figure 2-1 CSD Setup (Enable/Disable)


Note The Secure Desktop Image field displays the image (and version) that is currently installed. The Enable Secure Desktop check box indicates whether CSD is enabled.


Step 2 Check or uncheck Enable Secure Desktop and click Apply.

ASDM enables or disables CSD.
