Cisco ASA Audit Event: 212012

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.

212012: Unable to write SNMP engine data to persistent storage

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-3-212012: Unable to write SNMP engine data to persistent storage.

Event 212012 is generated when the SNMP engine data is unable to be written to the file flash:/snmp/context-name,where it is usually stored. The error may be caused by a failure to create the flash:/snmp directory or the flash:/snmp/context-namefile. The error may also be caused by a failure to write to the file.

How could you resolve this situation?

The system administrator should remove the flash:/snmp/context-namefile and all SNMP Version 3 users and then add them again, to recreate the flash:/snmp/context-namefile.
