Can you disable all of ASDM except for the Monitoring piece?  I keep trying to find information on this but am not able to locate it if it is possible at all.  Any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,

ASDM is using commands to pull information and configure the ASA. So the users and their levels that apply to the ASA are the same for CLI and A

SDM. In other words priv 3, 5 and 15 segmentation is enforced with command authorization to make ASDM be able to view configs, monitor or configure. And the same privileges will hold for the same users when they try to use CL:I.


I hope it makes sense.

You can use users of priv level 3. These guys can only use the monitoring functions.

Level 5 can view config but not change it, also and 15 can configure.


I hope it helps.

PK,


Thank you for your response.  I am looking for something a little more specific.  We are working on deploying TACACS for CLI access to our 5540s, but when ASDM is launched, is there a way to only allow priv 3 or priv 5 for just that application but not affect CLI?


Thanks,


Kimberly
