Cisco ASA prompt for failover

Posted on November 12, 2010

Speed up your failover troubleshooting and activate the prompt command on your ASA.
With the prompt command can you specify the followings:

  • context   Display the context in the session prompt (multimode only)
  • domain    Display the domain in the session prompt
  • hostname  Display the hostname in the session prompt
  • priority  Display the priority in the session prompt
  • state     Display the traffic passing state in the session prompt
myfirewall(config)# prompt ? 

configure mode commands/options:
context Display the context in the session prompt (multimode only)
domain Display the domain in the session prompt
hostname Display the hostname in the session prompt
priority Display the priority in the session prompt
state Display the traffic passing state in the session prompt

myfirewall(config)# prompt state
act(config)#

Oops, this does not ADD the state, but set ONLY the state. Lets get back the hostname.

act(config)# prompt hostname state
myfirewall/act(config)#

Failover Priority shows the Primary or the Secondary priority.

myfirewall/act(config)# prompt hostname state priority
myfirewall/act/pri(config)#

I found it very cool feature.
