Cisco ASA Audit Event: 218005

Cisco ASA Events

The logs of network perimeter devices such as firewalls, antivirus applications and intrusion prevention systems contain crucial information that helps to pre-emptively block security attacks and breaches. Hence, it's mandatory for you to monitor and audit these logs. Because Cisco ASA provides the combined functionality of all the three, it becomes all the more important to monitor its logs. 

ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer, a comprehensive log management solution, collects and analyzes the log data from Cisco ASA devices, triggers alerts and generate reports on detected security incidents thus helping you to take suitable measures against security threats, if any.

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?

If the message recurs, collect the output of the show tech-support command and contact Cisco TAC.
