reload FWSM?

I want to create another transparent security context in the my company's FWSM.

There are already several other security contexts created: 4 - routed & 1 - transparent

recently, we re-partitioned from the default 12 memory partitions to 5 memory partitions

I just want to create a new transparent security context ... that shouldn't require a FWSM reload, should it?

thanks,

Creating a new context does not require a reload but be aware that if you have only 5 memory partitions created and all 5 have been allocated a context then your new context will have to share a memory context with an existing partition.

Hello Kevin,

There is no need to reload the FWSM when you create the context in multiple context mode.

true, two of the larger ACL'ed contexts have their own memory partition, and the remaining are smaller ones will be sharing memory partitions

cool, thanks
