My slot #1 for the ASA 5558-X firewall, what a disaster!
Cisco sent me the new card. This encompass the IPS and upper ports known as Gi1/X and TenGige1/X
A power down insertion of the new card did not come up upon reboot. In fact a lot of things did not come up from; the failover link, interfaces and detection for failover link by the failover standby peer
So back to cisco & why my IPS-module reload and why upper ports on this chassis goes down with no warning and requires a reboot or power down/reset for slot#1. Also the million down mystery ; "is it by design that shutdown of module one is suppose to shutdown the ports on that card " my case engineer is investigating that.
To refresh, read the following;
I'm sure ciscoTAC will make it all right in the end. Friends shouldn't let friends buy a cisco ASA
