FWSM 6500 nameif configuration problem

Hi,

This is a wierd problem that I can't seem to find the answer for online.  I just put together a 6506-e and now I'm trying to configure it like our current 6509.  I tried to create a vlan on the switch and wanted to add it to the FWSM.  I followed the documentation below,

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps2706/products_configuration_example09186a00808b4d9f.shtml

but when I got to the nameif part of the documentation, the nameif command didn't exist.  It's not a command I can find on the FWSM(config)#. When I do a '?' I get name and names but no nameif.  Is there something else I need to configure either on the switch or FWSM?   I see it on our current 6509 so I'm baffled as to why it doesn't show up on our 6506.

On the router# I created a vlan100 gave it an ip address of 10.94.80.9 255.255.255.0. I set the firewall vlan-group number to 1 and added 100 to firewall group 1.  Then I sessioned into the FWSM# and went to 'config t' and couldn't add a nameif.  I did a show vlan and it showed 100.

Any ideas why? I've never configured a 6500 from scratch so this is another first for me.

Looks like you have an older version of FWSM OS earlier, and the command to configure nameif is directly from the configuration mode, ie:

nameif vlan100 inside security100

Currently you are running version 4.0.7, and here is the format to configure the interface nameif:

interface vlan100

     nameif inside

     security-level 100

     ip address x.x.x.x

Here is the configuration guide for your reference:

Hope that helps.

Thanks Jennifer that's exacly what I needed.  We still have an older version 6509 FWSM and it still uses the old nameif format.  I didn't know there was a new way of doing it.  Thanks again.
