I have an ASA that is logging the message %ASA-3-321007: system is low on free memory blocks of size 2048. I ran the "show blocks" command and the "Cnt" value for the 2048 blocks is 0. How do I reclaim these blocks and what are they used for?
We want to run ASA 8.4.x on an old ASA5540. We need to upgrade its memory to 2 GB with the following memory upgrade: ASA5540-MEM-2GB=
I suspect that we will completely remove the existing 1 GB of memory and replace it with 2 GB. If this is the case, can I use this 1 GB of memory removed from the ASA5540 and put it in a ASA5510 instead of buying a ASA5510-MEM-1GB= for the ASA5510?
We recently added about 400 users to our network for a total of 1000. Looking at the ASDM we are holding very tight to 75% utilization and we have 256mbs. This is also running IOS 8.2(1). Our firewall recently crashed after a major download was forced through it. This was after only being booted up for about a week. We had reloaded it a week prior after having ran it for about a year without issue. We havent made any changes in the last month other than adding more users to our network.
I would just like to to open UDP port 123 in the ASA 5510 Firewall so that our Primary Domain Controller could use this port to sync time with an external time source. We have already added an access rule for this port under the firewall configuration in ASDM 6.4 and this port was also allowed in the inbound and outbound rule of the PDC's Firewall but it seems that it was still blocked.
We have an ASA5510 that we need to open port 25 to allow mail traffic to our internal Exchange server.We have 2 interfaces defined... one named Internal on eth0/3 ip 10.1.x.x and one named Internet on eth 0/0 ip 96.56.x.x.We followed the instructions in ASDM for allowing access to a public server but confusion over definitions have stopped us.ASDM asks for the internal interface and the internal server IP... no problem there because the internal interface and server have two different IP addresses. The Internal interface is eth 0/3 (10.1.1.1) and the server is 10.1.1.2.
However, when we get to the External interface (eth 0/1) there is only a single IP address 96.56.x.x but the ASDM asks for an Interface IP and the IP people would use to get to the mail server from the outside. Inasmuch as we have only 1 external IP address (which connects to our upstream Cisco router which in turn connects to the ISP modem) we used the same IP for both but the ASDM returns an error indicating they must be different.
Apparently we do not have a clear understanding of what the ASDM is actually asking for. When the ASDM asks for the external interface we assumed it was asking for the named value we gave the interface (which is Internet). The named value "Internet" has an ip associated with it 96.56.x.x. But when the ASDM asks for the ip people on the outside would use to get to the mail server (we created a named value called "mail server" and gave it the same ip address as the external named value. This duplication of ip address causes the ASDM to return the error stating that external Interface to be used and the external ip to be used cannot be the same.Have we made an error when we assumed that when the ASDM asked for the external interface it meant the ip of the external interface or was it asking for the eth number (as in eth 0/0) for the interface?
I just finished implementing a VOIP install and I am trying to setup some softphones and in order to allow the softphones to work I need to open some specific ports for outbound. I am not a Cisco guy, I am a Windows Administrator that also has to maintain my Cisco infrastructure.
We are running a Cisco ASA 5510 in our district. We have been using it for about a year and a half after an upgrade from our PIX. I have been using the CLI to manage it but I wanted to start using the ASDM. I installed the ASDM Launcher last Friday but could not access it. I have enable the http server on the ASA, assigned an IP to the interface, and granted my machine's IP inside access. On Friday I was unable to launch the ASDM. I then downgraded Java. I came in this morning and was able to connect through the launcher. However I could not make any changes as it would give me an error message and often popped up with "lost connection" type messages. I then closed the ASDM but could not reconnect after that. When I try to connect through the launcher I receive the message "Unable to launch ASDM from 172.16.5.1: Connection reset". When I try https://172.16.5.1/admin/ from a browser I simply receive "page cannot be displayed". I'm not sure why I can't connect.
I got a situation here for Nat-ed IPs i configured. I expected to open some ports on the interface to allow certain traffics to pass through, yet there are some of them are failed. Down is my current config.
object-group service DM_INLINE_SERVICE_1 service-object icmp service-object tcp destination eq https
The only ports opened are 443, www, 3389 while ports domain, 5061,3478,3389. how to open domain, 5061, 3478, and 3389 ports on my ASA .
I am doing the initial configuration on our ASA 5510 to use our Radius server just as our 3005 VPN Concentrator did. I can do the test connection inside the ASA with no problems, and when I authenticate using the Anyconnect client, it appears to authenticate fine, but then dumps the connection with an error stating there is not enough memory in he ASA to allow this connection, the error message is as follows:
Error Message %ASA-4-722004: Group group User user-name IP IP_address Error responding to SVC connect request. Explanation There is not enough memory to perform the action.
Recommended Action Purchase more memory, upgrade the device, or reduce the load on the device.
Can this really be the case with no connections active, a single user attempting to authenticate through Radius and an out-of-the-box ASA 5510?
I am trying to load the anyconnect VPN client package v3 for windows and Mac on ASA 5510. The ASA has 256MB for RAM and Flash. After I uploaded pkg files and selected the 2 files and applied from ASDM, ASDM spots responding...
I tried to tftp the running config from ASA to my laptop to analyse but got "No memory available" message...
So it seems like the "unzip" process of the pkg files used up memory... what is really the requirement of the mini Memory/RAM on ASA for hosting anyconnect Clients for 2 OS platform? Requirement on Cisco web site is kind of vague.
I have a faulty ASA5520 and I am not sure if I have a SMART net contract for it or not (I manage over 200+ ASAs). The problem is that the Serial Number sticker that is normally on the back of the ASA is missing. The ASA5520 is also faulty and doesn't power on so I cannot boot it up and run 'show ver' or similar. If I open the chassis there appears to be other Serial numbers on the Power Supply, and Motherboard etc but they do not seem to be the correct Chassis serial number i.e not in the right format, and if I put them into the Trade tool I get no results.
There must be another record of the serial numbers besides 1x sticker to the rear of the chassis that can fall off? How I can get the chassis serial when the device isn't booting. or (Cisco) is there a way to find the chassis serial number from the power or motherboard serial?
I'm setting up a second exchange 2010 server at a DR location and have been experiencing some problems. The two sites are connected via a pair of ASA5510's using the point to point VPN. I want to rules out any possible VPN issues that may be blocking ports and wanted to see if there is an easy way to do this and simply allow all traffic without any restrictions between the two ASAs. I've attached the scrubbed configs here...Ewing is the primary site and DBSi is the DR site.
for your recmmendation, on what type of equipment should I use in a Small Office probably around 50-100 users.Feature sets that I would want are: VPN - 5 VPN Peers for L2L connectivity and 50 SSL VPN connections, Firewall, Active-Standby Fail-over.
I'm on a limited budget, ASA 5510 with Security Plus License can give me this but its a bit expensive.Is there something else that you guys can recommend. ISR maybe?
I've deployed many Cisco PIX 501 v6.3.3 either as normal firewalling feature and/or with VPN features enabled. I noticed in all my deployments, regardless if it's during peak hours or after office hours, the memory utilization is always consistent 11MB utilized over the total of 16MB(memory default size).
I am trying to get experience with 8.4 code on my 5505. I purchased a Cisco 512MB memory upgrade and installed it. It booted up once and I thought I was ok. I then looked down and noticed that all lights were blinking on the front panel and I had no console access.
We have a customer that has a ASA 5525-x reporting only 4g flash memory rather than 8g has any 4g version of the 5525 or is the IOS reporting incorrectly the size, as it seems to be embedded on these units as a USB disk internal.
I am looking at upgrading an HA pair of ASA5520's from 8.2(2) to 8.3(1), and am just wondering why the huge upgrade in memory is needed. How are Cisco justifying where the additional memory is going to? Are there supposed to be some massive improvements in performance?
Come across pix 525 with 7.2.4 , 256 MB RAM, experienceing high memory utilization ?.show memory was giving used memory = 97%.All I had done was, i did a reboot of the firewall since we were not able to take the control of the f/w.I wonder why only the standby f/w had this issue and not the primary does not have, just to rule out that it was not due to Traffic.I have searched in bugtool kits and support forums and did not find anything relevant except for a similar issue for ASA CSCsg43844.
I need to add memory to my ASA 55xx's (running 8.2(2)), some of which are config'd active/active or active/standby. The docs say that ram must be identical, which makes sense for production. My question is this: can I upgrade the standby units first, make them active, and then upgrade their mate? Or must I schedule downtime to take the pair down for the upgrade?
