CSCvi91153 - "[FSM.FAILED]. external aaa server configuration" health alert

I'm having the exact same Platform Fault on the FTD 2110 firewalls as well. Cisco suggested to re-image back to code 6.2.2 since it is stable and 6.2.3 has numerous bugs.

Re: CSCvi91153 - "[FSM.FAILED]. external aaa server configuration" health alert

Hi Sergei, thanks! It works perfectly!

Re: CSCvi91153 - "[FSM.FAILED]. external aaa server configuration" health alert

It appears to be fixed in 6.2.3.6.

I've upgraded one of the 2110 from 6.2.3.3 and this error message has disappeared.

I'll be upgrading again on Thursday, hopefully this annoying 'critical' error has now been resolved.

 

Note: I did not apply your workaround.

Perhaps revert the workaround prior to upgrading to 6.2.3.6?

 

Update 14/11/2018:- It's a confirm on upgrading to 6.2.3.6 will fix this 'critical' message.

Have upgraded the other 2110 and it's looking solved.

I have the same error on several 2110 - even on 6.2.3.2-42

Re: CSCvi91153 - "[FSM.FAILED]. external aaa server configuration" health alert

Ran into it on 2120.

Workaround suggested by Cisco TAC worked for me:

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

The root cause of the issue is that one of the processes in code tries to open the /home/ldap or /home/radius directory even if external authentication is not enabled.

 

Can you please apply the following workaround to linux in the FTD device:

 

> expert

:~$ cd /home

:/home$ sudo su

:/home# mkdir ldap radius

:/home# chown admin ldap radius

:/home# chgrp users ldap radius

Did you have to reboot after adding this configuration?

This workaround worked for me on the base version 6.2.3 after a reboot.

I'm currently on 6.2.3.3-76 and still seeing the same error.

Previously saw it on 6.2.3.1-43 and was hoping it would be fixed in 6.2.3.3-76...

I'll have to try the posted workaround.
