How to reset ASA 5510?

Unanswered Question
Jul 1st, 2007


I tried to configure the ASA 5510 yesterday with the ASA Quick Start Guide but failed totally so I wanted to get a clean reset. I tried to reset it but something went wrong. Can't remember what it was but now when I try to connect to ASDM I get this:


Unable to launch ASDM from

No route to host: connect

I tried to hold in the tiny reset button at the back also but that didnt make any differense.

I have this problem too.

Solved it after x hours!

ciscoasa(config)# configure factory-default

ciscoasa(config)# write memory

Next time it will go faster!

I'm completely new to firewalls :o)

Still don't know what the reset button does though!

Now I'll restart with the ASA Quick Start Guide and see if I can do any better this time.
