Cisco ASA 1000V Licensing

Cisco ASA 1000V Licensing

The Cisco Nexus 1000V Virtual Service Module (VSM) requires a license that controls the number of CPU sockets on each Virtual Ethernet Module (VEM) that is used for the Cisco ASA 1000V. If the VSM does not have enough licenses, and you deploy a Cisco ASA 1000V without license support, the traffic is not allowed to pass through the Cisco ASA 1000V which means the following:

For the traffic that passes from the inside to the outside interface, traffic never reaches the Cisco ASA 1000V. See syslog 4450002 for more information in the Cisco ASA Series Syslog Messages.

For the traffic that passes from the outside to the inside of the interface, the Cisco ASA 1000V allows the initial packet to pass through, but the vPath module on the Cisco Nexus 1000V rejects the packet, and Cisco ASA 1000V rejects the flow. See syslog 4450002 for more information in
the Cisco ASA Series Syslog Messages.
