Hi All, we are in the process of upgrading from ASA version 8.2 to 9.1. I have all of the software upgrade requirements and hardware requirements in place. One thing that I am a bit hung up on is the use of names versus Objects.
I know that names cannot be used in ACLs, but on the other hand, defined Objects cannot be used in routes or to define a peer in a crypto map. Also objects cannot be used in packet captures or packet tracer tests. Obviously we'll need objects for any auto nat hosts
So, I am left wondering how people utilize Names and Objects in the newer versions of ASA code. Do you use both? Or have you moved away from using Names? I have tried googling this topic but have found very little useful information.
