218005: Inconsistency detected in the system information programmed in non-volatile memory
Cisco ASA is a security device that provides the combined capabilities of a firewall, an antivirus, and an intrusion prevention system. It also facilitates virtual private network (VPN) connections. It helps to detect threats and stop attacks before they spread through the network.
Message: %ASA-2-218005:Inconsistency detected in the system information programmed in non-volatile memory.
Event 218005 is generated when system information programmed in the non-volatile memory is not consistent. It would have been generated during start up when ASA had detected that the contents of the IDPROM were not identical to the contents of ACT2 EEPROM.
How could you resolve this situation?
