Static ARP didn't work on my ASA 5505 with asa924-20-k8.bin (9.2(4)20) even though the command was entered, shows in config, and reboot performed... No success.
This person said he did Static ARP on his 5505 with command alias at the end.
I tried this, cleared ARP, rebooted... No success.
This does look like a bug/flaw on at least the 5505. Online documentations shows it as a feature and ASDM leads you to believe it works as well.
I guess one way to implement the Static ARP / DHCP Reservation on a device where it does work and configure DHCP Relay (if that works!) on the ASA. The feature is available even on old Linksys Wirless G routers that came out in 2003... this does not make you look good Cisco!
The fact that this has not yet been addressed by Cisco, or even replied to, is truly pathetic.
DHCP reservation is a simple feature and something that should have been supported out of the box.
Can someone from Cisco please update as to why this is not included? I can only assume that some internal decision has been made not to support this feature, and customers are not being told.
Agreed. It is disheartening that this issue has been ignored for so long. The smaller ASA 5505/5506 line is great for small remote offices (that might not even have other DHCP services available) so to not have this feature available when other garbage soho gateways you can get at Best Buy are able to do this is beyond me.
With ASA on the chopping block for FTD code now, it's doubtful we'll ever get this functionality, which is a huge bummer because I still see 5505/06 boxes all over the place and this would be extremely useful when setting a static IP is sometimes a dangerous (from a remote support perspective) thing to do in a branch office location.
Come on Cisco, Really?? Every Other Manufacturer supports this feature. I have alot of sites that I cant move away from another vendor because of this.
Simple features like this not being there is how Cisco think they are being smart by forcing you to buy another product like a L3 switch. These small customers can't afford that and have already spent on a Cisco box. Remember when they removed the switchports (including the two POE ones) from the asa5505, the 5506 is an absolute disaster. If they haven't done it by now they don't want to do it. Just move to palo alto/fortigate/sonicwall/netgate etc.
BTW -> this thread started in 2008! 04-21-2008 05:19 PM exactly, this is pretty pathetic.
