ASA SFR Shutdown Procedure

To my knowledge ASA firewall can be shutdown by unplugging the firewall cable, but when SFR runs on SSD hard disk, can I do that? Will it require graceful shutdown?

Hi,

Hi,

You do have a shutdown command for the sfr hw and sw module shut down.

Please refer "shut down the module" section in below document

Thank you, how can I power on

Thank you, how can I power on the SFR without restarting ASA?

Example: I will shutdown the SFR and after sometime I would like to turn on the SFR. How can I do that?

Re: Thank you, how can I power on

This also bothers me? Does anyone know how to power on that module?

The sfr module is a software module on all ASA models (except the 5585-X). You can initialize it independently of the ASA in which it resides. See the command reference for the various relevant commands (sw-module module sfr reload, reset, shutdown etc.)
