i have FWSM with s/w 3.2(2). while i creating access list an error message appeared to me :
error message: "ERROR: Unable to add, access-list config limit reached"
this fwsm is single not multiple , i can't find the "resource acl-partition " command although it is found in the guide.
i want to know if this command applied only for multiple context? if yes , what the method that can i solve this problem in single fw.
Yes - the 'resource acl-partition' is supported only in multi-context mode. When you look at the Command Reference Guide, you will see that there is a dot only under the 'System' context in the Multiple Context mode. This implies that the command is only available via the System context:
If you are seeing this issue on a single context FWSM, your only means of recourse are to reduce the number ACL entries that you have. This may be best accomplished by combining host access-lists entries into subnet entries. Any approach that you can use to make your access-lists "less specific" will oftentimes reduce the amount of resources that the ACL takes up.
