enabling a third interface

Answered Question
Jun 7th, 2007

question is more cosmetic I guess but I'm trying to name a third interface and I get an error stating you cannot have more than 2 named non-management interfaces on your system. My other ASAs can do this with the excpetion of this one. We are all on 7.2(2) software. Any ideas?

I have this problem too.

Your firewall might be running in transparent mode. In this mode, you can only have 2 non-management interfaces.

ASA# show firewall

Firewall mode: Transparent

If you dont want your firewall in Transparent mode, you can change it to router mode using following command-

ASA(config)# no firewall transparent

Hope that helps.
