I am struggling trying to decypher the part numbers for the ASA 5585-X.
I have never installed one of these so don't physically know how it all bolts together (other than the hardware guide on CCO). As far as I can tell its a 2-slot chassis and in slot 0 you have your SSP module (SSP-10, SSP-40 or SSP-60). In slot 1 you can have another SSP of the same type or an IPS-SSP of the same type - i.e. SSP-40 in slot 1 and either another SSP40 or an IPS-SSP-40. What I don't understand is the part numbers:
ASA5585-S40P40-K9 is desribed as 'Cisco ASA 5585-X IPS Edition SSP-40 IPS SSP-40 bundle includes firewall services, 6 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, 4 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ interfaces, 2 Gigabit Ethernet management interfaces,10,000 IPsec VPN peers, 2 Premium VPN peers, dual AC power, 3DES/AES license'
Surely this has both an SSP-40 and an IPS-SSP-40 so should have 12 * 10/100/1000 interfaces and 8 * 10GB SFP+ slots?
ASA5585-S40P40SK9 is described as 'Cisco ASA 5585-X Integrated Edition SSP-40 IPS SSP-40 Bundle with firewall services, IPS services, 10,000 IPsec VPN peers, 10,000 Premium VPN peers, 12 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, 8 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ interfaces, 4 management interfaces, 3DES/AES license'
Is this physically the same hardware with a different license enabling all the ports or am I missing something?
