Flow-Export problem

I have followed this document for configuring my ASA5525-X running 9.1 for netflow export:

http://www.draware.dk/fileadmin/SolarWinds/Guide/How_to_configure_Netflow_on_a_Cisco_ASA.pdf

Cant seem to get it to work though. I see the counter increasing, I see the ACL hit count going up, but my server is not getting into.

When I run a packet trace from my ASA to my Solarwinds server it says denied by an implicit deny.

What is the difference between the ACL Manager and Access Rules in ASDM?

Try to clear the counters of the "flow-export" output by running the "clear flow-export counters" command and then collect the output of the "show flow-export counters" five minutes after the clearing.

Share the output with us.

Just to be sure, let's try to get a packet capture and confirm that the Netflow information from the ASA is arriving to the server.

What's the Netflow collector application you are using?

Hello,

The packet tracer is for traffic going across the ASA not to or from the ASA itself.

ACL manager shows all the ACL's configured on the ASA (VPN, NAT, AAA, etc) and Access Rules shows only the ACL's applied to the interfaces.

Anyone see any reason why this wouldnet work? If more clips of the running config is needed, let me know.

Can you confirm the Netflow collector is actively listening on port 2055?

Can you confirm the packets are making it to the server?

Is the ASA the only device reporting to that same server? If not, are the other devices having issues with it?

Remember, the ASA works with Netflow v9 only.

I have about 7 riverbeds exporting just fine to it on port 2055. I also have a 3845 exporting to it. All devices are fine. Just seems to be the ASA. From the asa I can ping the netflow server, and vice versa.

Using Solarwinds NTA

What protocol of traffic should I be seeing from the ASA to the Netflow Collector?

I see syslog, SNMP, and Cflow traffic.

UGH!  Solarwinds NTA issue, hotfix#3 for version 3.10.0 fixes the issue for ASA OS 8.4 and higher.
