Started setup for the ASA 5510 with SSM-10 module. While attempting to connect with the ASDM 5.2 I received the following "ASDM is unable to read the configuration from the ASA. Please check the configuration and your connection and then try again by clicking the Refresh Icon."
I am able to connect via the Console port without any problem, where I verified that the Management interface is Up.
What am I missing?
I believe it is an issue with the Java version you have installed on your workstation. For ASDM 5.2, you need Sun Java 1.6 update 7 or older... 1.6 update 10 and above don't work with that version of ASDM.
