Cisco ASA Audit Event: 109103

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.

109103: Received CoA but failed to process successfully

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.

Event 109103 is generated when the ASA receives a correctly formatted change of authorization request, but is unable to process it successfully. The action type, source IP address, the username, and the audit session ID are specified in the message.

How could you resolve this situation?

Investigate the relevant VPN subsystem logs to determine why the updated attributes could not be applied or why the session could not be terminated.
