ASA 5506-X - Switchports?

danplacek

Just got my hands on a new ASA 5506-X and immediately ran into an odd issue:

 

There are eight layer 3 ports that seemingly cannot be used as switch ports.

There is no bridge-group capability available either. (which, if present, could be used to resolve this issue)

 

Why does this device even have 8 ports if they cannot be used as switchports?

Is this going to be fixed in future software? (By adding bridge groups?)

Can anyone think of any other "clever" workarounds?

 

Between this issue and the lack of POE, this device seems to be significantly less useful than the ASA5505.

 

Thank you.
