Situation: We bought new ASA5512-X. It worked everything okay. I had access over SSH on the ManagementPort which was directly connected to my PC. Then I realised there is a configuration already on it. I googled this: Reset ASA How ToSo i wanted to erase the config with
> conf t > write erase
because i read here Write Erase Command that it will clear my configuration and I continued on with configuring everything new over Console Cable (I should have checked at this point if I can connect to ASA with Console Cable ...). What I didn't think off, that I will immidatly loose connection to the ASA. Then i realised the ASA is rebooting. Why? (ASA is on my Desk)
Now I am not able to get Access on Management Port via DHCP, nether static IP 192.168.1.X. Because there is no configuration ->
And now the strange thing is, **I can't even get Access via Serial Cable. That is my main prolem!
My Question is: How can i get Access again AND what does "
write erase" really do? I don't think it's only clearing EVERY Configuration, can it be that it also cleared my disk?
Procedure: When I cannoct over console I do following: I use old Server with WIN2012R2. Connect blue Serial Cable to SerialPort on Server and on Console Port on ASA Then I try to connect via Putty to ASA. (Used COM1, COM2. More comes aren't shown in Device Manager).
UPDATE: Today my USB-to-Serial Adapter Calbe arrived. I can now Access my old Router (so the connection is fine) but I can't connect to the ASA over the Consolee cable ... I rally don't know what's wrong. I also tested every Speed which is avaible from Tera Term Pro.
