Documentation for Version 6.2.0
The following documents were updated for Version 6.2.0 to reflect the addition of new features and functionality and to address reported documentation issues:
The Firepower Management Center Configuration Guide does not state that if you deploy an access control rule, SSL rule, or identity rule with geolocation network conditions and the system detects an IP address that appears to be moving from country to country, the system incorrectly reports the continent rule as unknown country.
The Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services Local Management Configuration Guide states After you establish remote management and register the Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services to a Firepower Management
Center, you must manage the ASA FirePOWER module from the Firepower Management
Center instead of ASDM. However the guide does not state that once remote management is established, you cannot access the ASA FirePOWER configuration with the ASDM manager.
