Description: This episode features discussion about the new Cisco ASA Services Module (ASASM). Topics discussed include the hardware architecture differences between the ASASM and the Firewall Services Module (FWSM), new features introduced with the ASASM, and FWSM to ASASM migration tools and strategies.
You must copy the migrated configuration file to the startup configuration
of the ASA SM. When the ASA SM is subsequently restarted, the startup configuration
is parsed upon startup. The ASA SM image takes the NAT, ACL, and other commands
that have been deprecated or changed from the FWSM and translates the commands
into the commands that the ASA SM accepts.
