Cisco ASA Audit Event: 105040

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.

105040: Mate failover version is not compatible

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-1-105040: (Primary) Mate failover version is not compatible.

The primary and secondary ASAs should run the same failover software version to act as a failover pair. Event 105040 is generated when the secondary ASA failover software version is not compatible with the primary ASA. This would disable failover on the primary ASA.

How could you resolve this situation?

To enable failover, make sure that the primary and secondary ASAs run the same software version.
