This document describes the useful commands for troubleshooting ZBF related issues.
What is Zone Based Firewall?
Security zone: It is a group of interfaces to which a policy can be applied. By default, traffic can flow freely within that zone but all traffic to and from that zone is dropped by default. To allow traffic pass between zones, administrators must explicitly declare by creating a zone-pair and a policy for that zone. Another notice is that traffic originated from the router itself is allowed to pass freely.
Zone-pair : allows you to specify a uni-directional firewall policy between two zones. In other words, a zone-pair specifies the direction of the interesting traffic. This direction is defined by specifying a source and destination zone. Notice that we can’t defined a zone as both source and destination zone.
Zone Policy : defines what we want to allow or deny to go between zones. For example we just want to allow HTTP while dropping SMTP, ICMP… We have 3 actions “pass”, “drop” and “inspect”. The “pass” and “drop” actions are self-explanatory. The action “inspect” tell the router to use a pre-defined class-map to filter the traffic.

Basic debug: can be run without a strong threat of the router crashing
debug policy-firewall protocol tcp
debug policy-firewall detail
debug policy-firewall obj-cre
debug policy-firewall obj-del
debug policy-firewall events
debug policy-firewall list <ACL_num> <<<< use this command to filter the above debug output on the specific flow defined by ACL.
Advanced debug: much more verbose and run a higher threat of crashing the router

debug cce dp named-db inspect

Hi, We have a two node ISE deployment and the primary has admin and policy and the secondary has monitoring and policy services. recently after we have upgraded to ISE 3.1 from 3.0 we are experiencing random application server restart on the primary ...
i have configured ISE-PIC that will get users details from my 2 DC and i have FMC that will use those users for ACP. everything seems working until 1 day it suddenly failed and not all users from AD are not mapping to my FMC and FTD.
