ASA VPN L2L session names no longer works.

Since upgrading ASAs from v7.24 to v8.21, the ASDM VPN L2L sessions no longer displays the names of the tunnel-group peers as defined by the name command. Works fine in v7.24. I found this a really useful feature to identify remote peers by name rather than IP address.

Have Cisco made a backward step?


Re: ASA VPN L2L session names no longer works.

Have you tried enabling the name functionality on the ASA (perhaps it got disabled somehow)?

You can go to the CLI on the ASA and do the following commands:

ASA(config)# no names

ASA(config)# names

This is not going to affect functionality or disrupt anything, it will just enable or disable the ability to check out the names configured.

Let me know.

Re: ASA VPN L2L session names no longer works.

I've tried your suggestion but it has made no difference.

The names of the IKE peers do appear in brackets under the ASDM VPN L2L configuration connection profiles and using the CLI command "sh cry is sa" but not under the ASDM VPN monitoring as they used to when running v7.24 (asdm 524).
