ASA Firewall Interfaces Issues (FIREPOWER2100)

Hi

in the office where I work, we have an old Firepower 2100 firewall with 16 interfaces,
8 ethernet and 4 fiber. So far we have only used 2, one inside and one outside.
Now I need to add a server on another ethernet port to be able to reach it via ipsec,
but any interface I program and which obviously I put in "no shut" remains in shutdown.
The only interfaces that work are 1, 2 and management. I tried everything and searched online
but found no explanation. It seems absurd to me to have 12 ports and only be able to use 2.

Can anyone help me please?

Hi My name is Minhyeok from Korea.

 

It seems to me that it is in the no shut state on the ASA, but in the shutdown state on the firepower chassis manager.

 

You have to connect in fxos and try to port no shutdown.

 

You can access both gui and cli.

 

Find fxos manual

 

Thank you

try to understand the issue, is the interface physically connected to switch or any other device :

 

here is a quick start guide to managing devices with chassis manager.
