Address or name of remote host []?

Hi -

Based on what I see searching all open/closed TAC cases, it appears your ASA may have a corrupt flash, as is the case with a few other cases that I found.

I would suggest opening a TAC case under initial warranty to see if you can get a replacement.

thanks for your help; but I think I found the solution.

What I did is I simply format the memory flash of ASA and after reboot, all things are good.
