In the ASDM
Objects -> Network objects/Groups
When we click on Add Network Object then consider the name which we specify is TEST1 and IP Address Range is 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.0 and we create one more Network Object and then we specify name as TEST2 and IP Address Range is 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.192 .Once we apply , then the previous network object TEST1] is replaced with the newer name [TEST2] .That means now there are 2 Network Objects entries with the same name in ASDM as shown below
TEST2 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.0
TEST2 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.192
This is equivalent to name command in CLI and doing a "sh name" will give single TEST2 with no subnet information over there
Hence please let me know if this is normal or is it a bug . I have found this in 6.3.1 , is this same in other versions as well ? Also is there any workaround to have 2 different names for similar IP Range with different mask with the above [other than the solution of creating object-group and assigning network-object to it , which i know will obviously work]
I have tested it in the lab, and realise that the ASDM network object should not have a netmask field because the "name" command does not have subnet field. That is why your test is getting overriden with the later name that you configured (TEST2).
The "name" command only have the following fields:
name ip_address name [description text]] Here is the command reference for "name" command for your reference: You can open a TAC case so ASDM bug can be raised. Hope that helps to clarify your concern.
name ip_address name [description text]]
Here is the command reference for "name" command for your reference:
