ASA 5585-X with SSP-CX20

Hi all,

We have recently adquired an ASA 5585-X SSP20 with a CX20 module. I have configure the management interface for both (ASA and module) but if i try to access the module from the ASA i got:  "Card in slot 1 did not respond to session request". Also i have noted that the module has not software details (please see file attached), is this behaviour normal or  i am missing something to initialize the module?

My understanding is that the modules interfaces extend the ASA interface once installed, but i can just see the interfaces on the ASA itself (8 x Gib + 2 x TenGig)  Should i be able to use the other 8 Gib and 2 TenGig interface on the module? whould i be able to use 4x TenGib interfaces or just 2?

Thanks so much in advanced for your comments and help,

JC

You need to upgrade your ASA to version 8.4 to have support for the CX-SSP-20 module.

Cisco ASA 5585-X SSP-10 and SSP-20 firewalls require Cisco ASA Software Release 8.4.4 and later.

Hello Marius,

Thanks for your reply.  I do not have that command available, i just have the reset option:

ciscoasa5585(config)# hw-module module 1 ?

exec mode commands/options:

  reset  Reset the module

I did reset it this morning, but i got no changes. Why those commands are not available is it because of the ASA software version.

Thanks for your reply

It could be of the ASA version.

What ASA version are you running?  Are you running multiple context mode?
