Got new ASA5550, code 8.2.2 in flash, can't configure "nameif" or "ip address" on the interfaces:


ciscoasa(config)# int gig0/0

ciscoasa(config-if)# ?



Interface configuration commands:

  default      Set a command to its defaults

  description  Interface specific description

  dhcp         Configure parameters for DHCP client

  duplex       Configure duplex operation

  exit         Exit from interface configuration mode

  help         Interactive help for interface subcommands

  no           Negate a command or set its defaults

  shutdown     Shutdown the selected interface

  speed        Configure speed operation



These are all the options that I get! Another weird thing I noticed is "<system>" string in "show ver" top line:


ciscoasa# sh ver



Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 8.2(2) <system>
