ASDM Not working

Answered Question
Apr 14th, 2010

Guys,

My ASA 5510 has the ASDM which I can download and install or view through the browser, however when I try to either I can only get so far as putting in the credentials then both forms stop. The browser just stays a main page will open and the app just closes.

I have built another fresh PC windows xp just incase my was corrupt, however I still get the same thing. the ASA is running 7.0(8) and the ASDM is 5.0(8).

Any ideas, I can still telnet to the device but I can't seem to open the ASDM and the problem seems to be the device.

Hi,

When doing a ''sh flash'' you see the image and ASDM version correct?

Just as when doing a ''sh ver''

You are using local credentials to access ASDM?

''sh user''

This user must have privilege 15

You're not getting any kind of error?

Federico.

Hi,

Yes, there is no error message, which is really strange. I'm using an account with privilege 15 and the version is correct.

What version of Java are you running?  Several Java versions have problems with ASDM.  I do not remember all the undocumented versions conflicts between ASDM and Java, but I do remember about when there started to be a problem.

I would first make sure you have the most recent java version, as of this post it is version 6 update 19,  but if you still have problems try version 6 update 7 I believe the issue started with update 11.

Hi,

    First off you have to make sure that your java version is compatible with your asdm version. I used to face this kind of problem before. In case it's not a java problem. You may need to restart ASA.

Well,

    I'm not sure why I got low rating on this thread. If it was my wording,"restart the device", then I would have to tell you that I and my colleagues had to do this as a last resource for this kind of problem when not accessing to ASA for a long time. It worked for us and the point is we did try many different java versions and many different machines as well.

    Wow, this is my first day to get back to work with Netpro again. It's not a good day though.

Federico,

   Thanks for your prompt. (grin)

   P.S. It would be nice to know what people have in mind when they choose 1-rating here.

I have no problem with the suggestion and I wish I could say that it wasn't me who gave the 1, but the website says it was.   No idea how or when, but it won't let me change it either.  I guess the simple answer is sorry, but if anyone knows how to remove or change a rating then that would be better.

What makes you think it was you that gave the 1 rating ?

I have a gold star and 3 green stars next to the post.  I have only seen gold stars on posts I have rated before.

I doubt it was you who rated the post 1 if you can't remember doing it. You can't tell who rates posts so don't worry about it, no need to apologize

Guys,

   I have to say "Sorry" to you all.  

   @Ryan, you did a good job in this thread.

   @Jon , Long time no see. You're still around. Nice to know that you have been helping people as always. You rock!!

Agreed, not sure why your answer got a 1.  +5 to try and balance it out.

Guys,

I've tried on another clean PC just to be sure and the versions I'm running are:

Java 1.6.0_19

ASDM 5.0(8)

ASA 7.0(8)

Browser 6.0

XP 5.1

I've rebooted the ASA device but this does not make any difference. It's just really odd, if there was an error messege or something that I could diagnose it would not be a problem.
