But it can not accept "sla monitor" command in my ASA with multiple security context?

I also have the same issue.  We are running an ASA 5520 7.2(4) in multiple context mode.  I cannot enter the "sla monitor" command, as it is not recognised.

The only reference I can find regarding SLA monitor setup, is concerning the ASA 8.0 code.


SLA Monitoring on ASA


SLA monitoring does not work after the ASA is upgrade to version 8.0.


The problem is possibly be due to the IP Reverse-Path command configured in the OUTSIDE interface. Remove the command in ASA and try to check the SLA Monitoring.


Apologies if I am missing something blindingly obvious, however does anyone know why the command's don't seem to be recognised on our setup (multiple context, 7.2(4)?

Thank you for your help,

If you read this command reference link for sla monitor:


It is only supported in single routed mode. See the table.
