SCv5 Rack Update Status The Security Racks have been updated to a new simplified topology - please view the new Wiring Diagram and Assigned VLAN pages.

These are the changes made to the SCv5 Racks for Thursday, November 16th, 2017

  1. The ASA-5515x wiring has been changed so you can perform clustering using port-channels. The MGMT links (M0/0, Gi0/0 and gi0/1) on both ASAs connect to SW1 while the Data links (Gi0/2, Gi0/3 and Gi0/4) on both ASAs connect to SW2.
  2. On the ASAv VMs, Gi0/2 is no longer directly connecting the ASAv1/2 and ASAv3/4 pairs but connects to the primary rack vSwitch and supports sub-interfaces.
  3. On the FTD VMs, Gi0/2 is no longer directly connecting the FTD pair but connects to the primary rack vSwitch and supports sub-interfaces.
  4. On the ESA VMs, the D1 interface now supports sub-interfaces.
  5. On the WSA VMs, the P1 interface now supports sub-interfaces.

Minor update to the SCv5 Racks for Thursday, November 20th, 2017

  • The 10 CSRs have now have a single G1 interface that supports sub-interfaces.

The default configs are attached to this Rack Access Guide. Please download them and use them on SW1, SW2, R1 and R2 if you wish to reset these devices to their correct starting state.

These are the known issues with the SCv5 beta racks

  1. The Control Panel used to control the rack devices and interact with the Windows VMs is still not updated. The Device Management tab still shows the SCv4 devices and resetting of the VMs does not work.
  2. The SCv4 workbook and any customer saved SCv4 configs will not work on the SCv5 racks. They are not compatible. While the automation may load them onto the SCv5 racks, the will not be functional. The devices, interface names and the topology are different.
  3. There is no Workbook currently available for the SCv5 racks.
  4. There are no configurations currently available for the SCv5 racks.
