ASA5512-X Setup using Management Interface

TallanCisco

I have a brand new ASA5512-X running 8.6.1, and am trying to do an initial setup using the Quick Start Guide that came with it.  However, the Management Interface is not working.  I have a PC connected and set to use DHCP, but the port is not active. 

I connected a console cable and can see in the config that the interface is shutdown.  So I set it to active, and the port is now active, but is not giving out a DHCP address as the guide says it should.

I would like to use the ASDM Startup Wizard to configure this device, so how do I get it to work the way the instructions say it should?

Thanks!

Hello,

Try by console cable to use the commad:

config factory-default

and in case you don't have this:

ssl encryption des-sha1


It should get your ASDM working.

Let me know how this works for you.

Regards

Thank you!

The first command worked.  Interesting that a brand new device would need to be reset to factory default.

As for the second command, when I added it, ASDM would not work.  When I removed that command, ASDM does work.

Thanks again!
