One of my colleagues is considering utilizing on his PIX running OS 7.2 the ADSM gui interface. I do not have any exposure to ADSM, because I'm the type of guy who like the command line, which give me a feeling of control.
I know the PDM for version 6.3 didn't like complex configurations especially with NAT policies. I'm wondering if ADSM for PIX 7.2 has similar limitations.
My concern is usability. I know in pdm, I've created a policy NAT based upon an acl and the pdm did not like this even though the policy based global/NAT was supported by Cisco. PDM rverted to monitor mode and I was not able to use PDM any longer to make changes. By the way, the PDM I speak of is on my small PIX501. I did not use or plan on using PDM or adsm om my 525.
I guess I'm concerned that asdm will support complex PIX configurations such as logical interfaces, policy nat, etc.
