Cisco ASA Audit Event: 104002

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.

104002: Switching to Standby

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-1-104002: (Primary) Switching to STANDBY (cause: string).

Event 104002 is generated when the failover pair is forced to switch roles, either by entering the 'failover Active' command on the standby unit, or the 'no failover Active' command on the Active unit. 

How could you resolve this situation?

No action is required if this event is caused by manual intervention. Otherwise, use the cause reported by the secondary unit to verify the status of both units of the pair.

We can help you simplify log management and improve your organization's security with EventLog Analyzer.
