Product Overview
The Cisco ASA 5505 Adaptive Security Appliance delivers unprecedented levels of defense against
threats to the network with deeper web inspection and flow-specific analysis, improved secure
connectivity via end-point security posture validation, and voice and video over VPN support. It also
provides enhanced support for intelligent information networks through improved network integration,
resiliency, and scalability.
The adaptive security appliance software combines firewall, VPN concentrator, and intrusion prevention
software functionality into one software image. Previously, these functions were available in three
separate devices, each with its own software and hardware. Combining the functionality into just one
software image provides significant improvements in the available features.
Additionally, the adaptive security appliance software supports Adaptive Security Device Manager
(ASDM). ASDM is a browser-based, Java applet used to configure and monitor the software on the
adaptive security appliances. ASDM is loaded from the adaptive adaptive security appliance, then used
to configure, monitor, and manage the device.
This section describes the front and rear panels. Figure 1-1 shows the front panel LEDs.

Memory Requirements
Memory Requirements
The default DRAM memory is 256MB and the default internal flash memory is 128MB for the
Cisco ASA 5505.
In a failover configuration, the two units must have the same hardware configuration They must be the
same model, have the same number and types of interfaces, and the same amount of RAM.
Note
The two units do not have to have the same size Flash memory. If using units with different Flash
memory sizes in your failover configuration, make sure the unit with the smaller Flash memory has
enough space to accommodate the software image files and the configuration files. If it does not,
configuration synchronization from the unit with the larger Flash memory to the unit with the smaller
Flash memory will fail.

Maintaining Safety with Electricity
Warning
Before working on a chassis or working near power supplies, unplug the power cord on AC units;
disconnect the power at the circuit breaker on DC units. Statement 12
Follow these guidelines when working on equipment powered by electricity:
•
Before beginning procedures that require access to the interior of the chassis, locate the emergency
power-off switch for the room in which you are working. Then, if an electrical accident occurs, you
can act quickly to turn off the power.
•
Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist anywhere in your work space.
•
Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit; always check the circuit.
•
Look carefully for possible hazards in your work area, such as moist floors, ungrounded power
extension cables, frayed power cords, and missing safety grounds.
•
If an electrical accident occurs, proceed as follows:
– Use caution; do not become a victim yourself.
– Disconnect power from the system.
– If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, assess the condition of the victim
and then call for help.
– Determine if the person needs rescue breathing or external cardiac compressions; then take
appropriate action.
•
Use the adaptive security appliance chassis within its marked electrical ratings and product usage
instructions.
•
Install the adaptive security appliance in compliance with local and national electrical codes as listed
in the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information for the Cisco ASA 5500 Series document.
•
The adaptive security appliance models equipped with AC-input power supplies are shipped with a
3-wire electrical cord with a grounding-type plug that fits only a grounding-type power outlet. Do
not circumvent this safety feature. Equipment grounding should comply with local and national
electrical codes.

Chapter 2
Preparing for Installation
General Site Requirements
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. ESD damage occurs
when electronic components are improperly handled and can result in complete or intermittent failures.
•
Always follow ESD-prevention procedures when removing and replacing components. Ensure that
the chassis is electrically connected to earth ground. Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring
that it makes good skin contact. Connect the grounding clip to an unpainted surface of the chassis
frame to safely ground ESD voltages. To properly guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist
strap and cord must operate effectively. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching
the metal part of the chassis.
•
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap, which should be between
1 and 10 megohms (Mohms).
General Site Requirements
The topics in this section describe the requirements your site must meet for safe installation and
operation of your system. Ensure that your site is properly prepared before beginning installation.
This section includes the following topics:
•
Site Environment, page 2-3
•
Preventive Site Configuration, page 2-3
•
Power Supply Considerations, page 2-4
•
Configuring Equipment Racks, page 2-4
Site Environment
Place the chassis on a desktop or mount it on a rack. The location of the chassis and the layout of the
equipment rack or wiring room are extremely important for proper system operation. Equipment placed
too close together, inadequate ventilation, and inaccessible panels can cause system malfunctions and
shutdowns, and can make the chassis maintenance difficult.
For information on physical specifications, see table 7 at the following url:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/vpndevc/ps6032/ps6094/ps6120/product_data_sheet0900a
ecd802930c5.html.
When planning the site layout and equipment locations, keep in mind the precautions described in the
next section “Preventive Site Configuration, page 2-3,” to help avoid equipment failures and reduce the
possibility of environmentally caused shutdowns. If you are currently experiencing shutdowns or
unusually high error rates with your existing equipment, these precautions may help you isolate the
cause of failures and prevent future problems.
Preventive Site Configuration
The following precautions will help plan an acceptable operating environment for the chassis and avoid
environmentally caused equipment failures:
Cisco ASA 5505 Adaptive Security Appliance Hardware Installation Guide
OL-18362-01
2-3
Chapter 2
Preparing for Installation
General Site Requirements
•
Electrical equipment generates heat. Ambient air temperature might not be adequate to cool
equipment to acceptable operating temperatures without adequate circulation. Ensure that the room
in which you operate your system has adequate air circulation.
•
Always follow the ESD-prevention procedures described previously to avoid damage to equipment.
Damage from static discharge can cause immediate or intermittent equipment failure.
•
Ensure that the chassis top panel is secure. The chassis is designed to allow cooling air to flow
effectively within it. An open chassis allows air leaks, which may interrupt and redirect the flow of
cooling air from the internal components.
Power Supply Considerations
For information on power supply considerations including environmental operating ranges and power
requirements, see table 7 at the following url:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/vpndevc/ps6032/ps6094/ps6120/product_data_sheet0900a
ecd802930c5.html
Observe the following considerations:
•
Check the power at the site before installing the chassis to ensure that the power is “clean” (free of
spikes and noise). Install a power conditioner if necessary, to ensure proper voltages and power
levels in the source voltage.
•
Install proper grounding for the site to avoid damage from lightning and power surges.
•
In a chassis equipped with an AC-input power supply, use the following guidelines:
– The chassis does not have a user-selectable operating range. Refer to the label on the chassis for
the correct AC-input power requirement.
– Several styles of AC-input power supply cords are available; make sure you have the correct
style for your site.
– Install an uninterruptible power source for your site, if possible.
– Install proper site grounding facilities to guard against damage from lightning or power surges.

To prevent bodily injury when mounting or servicing this unit in a rack, you must take special
precautions to ensure that the system remains stable. The following guidelines are provided to ensure
your safety: This unit should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in the rack. When
mounting this unit in a partially filled rack, load the rack from the bottom to the top with the heaviest component
at the bottom of the rack. If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before mounting
or servicing the unit in the rack. Statement 1006
The following information can help plan equipment rack installation:
•
Allow clearance around the rack for maintenance.
•
If the rack contains stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers prior to mounting or servicing the unit
in the rack.
•
When mounting a device in an enclosed rack, ensure adequate ventilation. Do not overcrowd an
enclosed rack. Make sure that the rack is not congested, because each unit generates heat.
•
When mounting a device in an open rack, make sure that the rack frame does not block the intake
or exhaust ports.
•
If the rack contains only one unit, mount the unit at the bottom of the rack.
•
If the rack is partially filled, load the rack from the bottom to the top, with the heaviest component

Working in an ESD Environment
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. ESD damage occurs
when electronic components are improperly handled and can result in complete or intermittent failures.
Always follow ESD-prevention procedures when you remove and replace components. Ensure that the
chassis is electrically connected to earth ground. Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring that it
makes good skin contact. Connect the grounding clip to an unpainted surface of the chassis frame to
safely ground unwanted ESD voltages. To guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist strap and
cord must operate properly. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal part of
the chassis.s

Step 5
Place the DIMM in an antistatic container to protect it from ESD damage.
Installing the DIMM
To install the memory module, perform the following steps:
Step 1
Make sure that both latches on the DIMM connector are open.
Step 2
Remove a new DIMM from the antistatic container.
The DIMM is designed in such a way that the connector will fit only one way.
Step 3
Hold the DIMM component side up, with the connector edge away from you. Line up the notch in the
connector traces with the notch in the socket on the board.
Step 4
Carefully insert the connector edge into the socket and firmly press the DIMM into the socket until both
latches rotate to the close position against the DIMM. See Figure 9.

Cable Pinouts
This appendix describes pinout information for 10/100/1000BaseT ports, console and the RJ-45 to DB-9
ports, and the Management 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, and includes the following sections:
•
10/100/1000BaseT Connectors, page 1-1
•
Console Port (RJ-45), page 1-2
•
RJ-45 to DB-9, page 1-4
•
MGMT 10/100/1000 Ethernet Port, page 1-4
•
Gigabit and Fibre Channel Ports, page 1-5
10/100/1000BaseT Connectors
The adaptive security appliance supports 10/100/1000BaseT ports. You must use at least a Category 5
cable for 100/1000baseT operations, but a Category 3 cable can be used for 10BaseT operations.
The 10/100/1000BaseT ports use standard RJ-45 connectors and supports MDI and MDI-X connectors.
Ethernet ports normally use MDI connectors and Ethernet ports on a hub normally use an MDI-X connector.
Use an Ethernet straight-through cable to connect an MDI to an MDI-X port. Use a cross-over cable to
connect an MDI to an MDI port, or an MDI-X to an MDI-X port.
Figure 1-1 shows the 10BaseT and the 100BaseTX connector (RJ-45).

Cable Pinouts
Console Port (RJ-45)
To identify the RJ-45 cable type, hold the two ends of the cable next to each other so that you can see
the colored wires inside the ends, as shown in Figure 1-4.
RJ-45 Cable Identification
H5663
Figure 1-4
Examine the sequence of colored wires to determine the type of RJ-45 cable, as follows:
•
Straight-through—The colored wires are in the same sequence at both ends of the cable.
•
Crossover—The first (far left) colored wire at one end of the cable is the third colored wire at the
other end of the cable.
