Hi Reymon!

Have you checked if the ASA is crashing?  You can check by using the "show crash" command and if it is it will give you a big output.  You can also try setting a syslog; perhaps this can help you to get more information on what is going on.

Cheers!

Hi Yamil,

  Thanks for your reply. I check the crash file and  send to a cisco partner and they told me that the IOS is hit by a bug. I upgrade the IOS to 7.2(3) and so far  its not reloading anymore.

Thanks,

reymon

Yes, they are right. Your OS on the firewall was definitely hit by a bug. I have seen such issues on a failover pair running 7.2.. version where active gets stuck in a reload cycle. I don't remember the exact bug ID on top of my mind, though I guess its a public bug which you can pretty much dig.:).

Cheers.
