After config factory-default I get LAN access to via ASDM and make changes, but when I save and power cycle all my interfaces all go to administrative shutdown. Same thing if I save via console using write memory. Is there an additional step other than "save configuration to flash" in ASDM. Can I see the saved result (Show flash indicates no changed files) and is there a trick to activating a previously saved configuration. Thanks in advance for helping out a newbie

I'm rather new aswell to the ASA but maybe this will help in some way:

After a "write memory" command "show startup-config" should display the same as "show running-config". As I can understand it does not in Your case.

If You do a "show bootvar" do You have a "CONFIG_FILE" set?

If so maybe you should take a look at this:

Look for "boot config"

My "CONFIG_FILE" is not set, and as I can understand it should not be in a default config.

Hope this helps in som way..
