This Article explain way to back and restore configuration of ASA running on Firepower 2100 series platform. When you run ASA on Firepower 2100 platform, you have two software, FXOS and ASA on the platform. You need to backup config on both software. As on ASA 9.8.2, you can backup ASA config using Copying "show running-config". FXOS needs manual configuring.
Backup ASA Configuration:
ASA Configuration can be backup with any one of below items.
1) Copy running-config ftp:/scp:/smb:/tftp: (Copying ASA running configuration to ftp, scp, SMB, tftp, through Management or any of data interfaces)
2) Copy startup-config ftp:/scp:/smb:/tftp: (Copying ASA running configuration to ftp, scp, SMB, tftp, through Management or any of data interfaces)
3) Simply copy (show running-config) and paste to text file
Restoring ASA Configuration:
Restoring ASA config to ASA can be either of below steps.
1) Simply copy past ASA config file on ASA console/Terminal.
2) Copy ftp:/scp:/smb:/tftp: running-config
FXOS Configuration Backup & Restore:
Since FXOS on FP2100 doesn't have backup option, all configurations need to be noted down manually. "show tech-support fprm" can be also used, which have some of below configuration. You may use FCM Firepower Chassis Manager or FXOS CLI to configure below parameters.
Firepower Chassis Manager: https://<FXOS-IP>
Management IP address for FXOS: firepower-2110#Scop fabric-interconnect a firepower-2110 /fabric-interconnect #set out-of-band static/DHCP
DNS Config: firepower-2110#Scope system firepower-2110 /System#Scope Services firepower-2110 /system/services # create dns
Firepower 2100 series platform can run either FTD or ASA software.
When Firepower 2100 series platform running ASA, has two software, FXOS and ASA. Both have its own management IP address and share same physical Interface Management 1/1.
Both ASA and FXOS has its own authentication, same with SNMP, Syslog and tech-support logs.
Toggle between FXOS & ASA prompt:
From FXOS prompt, you can use "connect asa" to go to ASA prompt, "exit" to come back to FXOS.
From ASA prompt, you can use "connectfxos" to go to FXOS prompt, "exit" to come back to ASA.
When using Console, you'll login to fxos prmpt.
ssh/telnet to ASA Management IP to access ASA.
ssh to fxos management IP to access FXOS.
ASA & FXOS Management:
In order to manage ASA, you have ASDM or CLI (SSH, Telnet). To manager FXOS, we have CLI and FCM-Firepower Chassis Manager - Browser base GUI tool.
FXOS useful configurations:-
The Default IP address for FXOS IP address for FP2100 running ASA is 192.168.45.45.
Verify & Configuring Management IP address for FXOS:-
To Verify FXOS IP address

firepower /fabric-interconnect* #commit-buffer (Commit buffer to save config)
some time you may get below error:
" Error: Update failed: [Management ipv4 address (IP 10.106.143.40 / net mask 255.255.255.0 ) is not in the same network of current DHCP server IP range 192.168.45.5 - 192.168.45.10. Either disable DHCP server first or config with a different ipv4 address.] "
If you get above error, you need to either disable DHCP or change DHCP range in the same subnet as new Management IP address.
Disabling DHCP Server:
firepower# scope system
firepower /system* #scope services
firepower /system* # disable dhcp-server
firepower /system* # enable dhcp-server 10.106.143.10 10.106.143.20 (To enable DHCP server on FXOS)
Configuring NTP ortimezone on ASA running on FP2100 is restricted. Clock,timezone,ntp need to be configured on FXOS, which will besync to ASA.

Cisco has rolled out a new Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution starting with AsyncOS 11.0 for on premise Cisco Email Security Appliances (ESA), and Cisco's Cloud Email Security (CES). The Cisco DLP solution replaces the existing RSA DLP solution available on AsyncOS 10.0.x and earlier releases. Cisco's DLP solution allows seamless migration of all the existing DLP policies created in RSA DLP to the new Cisco DLP engine. After the upgrade, you can view or modify the migrated DLP policies from the Mail Policies > DLP Policy Manager page in the ESA's web interface. For more information, see the “Data Loss Prevention” chapter in the User Guide for AsyncOS 11.0 for Cisco Email Security Appliances.
RSA had previously announced the End of Life (EOL) for RSA Data Loss Prevention Suite. The last date of support from RSA for DLP is December 31st, 2017. Beyond December 31st, 2017, Cisco will provide Cisco customers with technical support assistance on ESA for anything relating to RSA DLP solution. However, Cisco will not support feature upgrades or bug fixes with respect to RSA's DLP solution on ESAs running 10.0.x and earlier releases.
Note: There is no support for RSA Enterprise Manager Integration in Async0S 11.0 and later. If you have DLP policies created in RSA Enterprise Manager, you must recreate those policies on your appliance after the upgrade.
In order to continue supportability for DLP on Cisco ESA, customers on AsyncOS 10.0.x or earlier releases are requested to migrate to the AsyncOS 11.0 release at your earliest opportunity.
AnyConnect Apple iOS - Transition to Apple's latest VPN framework (NetworkExtension)
On approximately June 14, 2017, we will begin the public transition away from Apple's deprecated iOS VPN framework (VPN Plugin) which is what is currently used by AnyConnect to Apple's current VPN framework (NetworkExtension). The new framework will allow for more reliable VPN connectivity and also allows for us to finally officially support Per App VPN connectivity, not just for TCP applications, but UDP applications as well. Per App support requires EMM configuration.
Transition timeline and process -
Approximately June 14, 2017 An additional (new) AnyConnect application will appear in the App Store. This new application will be supported on iOS 10.x and later. We recommend the latest version of iOS 10.x or later is always used as Apple has provided bug fixes to improve the reliability of this newer framework.
App Store willing, the old application will be renamed to Cisco Legacy AnyConnect and will be rebranded with legacy branding in this same timeframe.
Phase out of legacy AnyConnect -
The legacy application (existing older AnyConnect) will only receive critical bug fixes going forward and will be phased out over an extended period of time. More details on the phase out timing will be announced at a later date.
Transition process -
Unfortunately there is no ability to automatically transition users from the old OS framework to the new framework. Users will need to download the newer AnyConnect application or have EMM push out the new AnyConnect application. The new application will need to be re-provisioned, whether manually or via EMM. This includes pushing down configuration and certificates (if applicable). To avoid confusion or conflicts, the old application should be removed from the endpoint.
EMM configuration -
EMM vendors must support VPNType (VPN), VPNSubType (com.cisco.anyconnect) and ProviderType (packet-tunnel). For integration with ISE, they must be able to pass the UniqueIdentifier to AnyConnect since AnyConnect no longer has this access directly in the new framework. Please consult with your EMM vendor for how to set this up, some may require this to be set up as a "custom" VPN type and others may not have support available at release time.
Today i will be showing you how to fix romman issue on ASA5525. Im going to link my youtube video on how to fix the romman issue. Dont forget to like my video and subscribe to my channel for more videos>
Here is step by step on how to fix the romman issue on ASA5525:
step1: if your firewall ASA5525 boot to the romman on the first boot that mean the firewall you running is running through issue.
step2: as you see in the video the amaber light led on the alarm not because the firewall was on romman, but the unit was running through hardware issue. It can be the powersupply, fan, memory ......etc.
step3: on the romman type in "boot flash" or just "boot" to boot the software that ASA5525 running.
step4: after you were able to boot to the ASA type in "enable" and press "enter" twice to enter to the ASA console as defult.
step5: check your show version by typing in this command "show Ver" or "show version" to see if the config register was configured to the right register or not. The config resgister should be registered under this "0x1".
step6:If the config register showing something else other the "0x1" you need to change it to "0x1". step7: save the configuration by typing in this command "wr" or "write" then reload .
If you follow all the steps above then you shouldnt have any issue to boot the ASA5525 normally .
If you saw this video was helpfull to you please like, share, comment and subscribe to my channel.
This is a living document and will be updated as and when required.
Q1: Why do we keep the backup?
A1: We keep the backup because we need to keep the record of any changes done in the router configuration file. This is because due to any untoward incident if the hardware or the software or both get damaged then the administrator can easily retrieve the configuration. Otherwise the person would require to reconstruct a complex router configuration file from memory (memory type). When you have the backup of the last working configuration file, you can usually get a router working again within minutes of fixing any (hardware/software or both) problems.
