Firewall Cisco ASA 5505 new interface license problem

Hi

I have one ASA 5505 with a Base License

The problem is when i want to use a new named interface the system says "With current License maximum number of named interfaces allowed is 3. Name cannot be set for this interface"

And the question is if with this base license the interface cannot be used or only cannot be named?

Re: Firewall Cisco ASA 5505 new interface license problem

Hi,

The ASA5505 has with Base License the limitation of 3 Vlan interface of which 1 is also limited in access (shown by the above output mentioning DMZ Restricted)

For an interface on the ASA to operate it must have a name with the command "nameif"

If you already have 3 Vlan interfaces in use then with this license you wont be able to configure 4th Vlan interface without getting a license that supports more interfaces. I guess that would be the Security Plus license.

I know that this has come as a surprise to several users that have posted here on the forums. I too think that its a needles "feature" in the ASA to limit the use of the device in such a way.
