Manually Re-Sync the APIC if You Changed the Version of ASA After It Was Registered with the APIC
Use this workaround for caveat CSCva89163:
Symptom Some commands do not work. For example, the information for the network and neighbor commands is not displayed (CSCva89163).
Conditions If you are using a version of the ASA that is different from the version that is registered with APIC, it does not automatically re-register with the APIC. Therefore, if you are using an older version of ASA, some commands may not be supported.
Workaround Manually re-sync the APIC with the ASA by completing the following procedure:
Step 1 On the Tenants tab of the APIC GUI, expand L4-L7 Services in the left pane.
Step 2 Expand L4-L7 Devices.
Step 3 Expand the firewall that is running APIC.
Step 4 Right-click the device that is running APIC, and select Re-Query for Device Validation.
