LMS 4.0 support for ASA firewall


I need to add ASA 5520 to LMS 4.0, mainly for configuration archiving. ASA seems to be supported on LMS 3.2 as per the below link.

I had directly added the ASA to the DCR, with the right login credentials and SNMPv3 strings , but still LMS fails to detect the ASA.

Thanks in advance.

Can you post your snmp config and show ver? What errors are you getting? Post a screenshot of the error.

When I add the ASA to the LMS using SNMPv3, the Device Management shows a blue box with a question mark(shown below).

Is ASA supported on LMS 4.0 with SNMPv3? Doing a troubleshooting on the LMS shows that LMS might only support SNMPv1 & v2.

Its supported, this just means you don't have the correct community strings configured in the DCR as indicated by the failed message for the reachablity status.  You're doing AuthNoPriv with Encryption and that's not supported by LMS.  It's either AuthNoPriv without encryption or AuthPriv with Encryption.

LMS only supports the following SNMP V3 settings:

Also ensure  that your pass phrase does not contain any special characters such "@,  #, $, %, ^, &, *".
