ASA Prompt Customisation

I occasionally run into Cisco ASAs that don’t identify their status (active/standby). This is rectified by configuring the “prompt “. These are:

asa-1-pri(config)# prompt ?

configure mode commands/options:
context Display the context in the session prompt (multimode only)
domain Display the domain in the session prompt
hostname Display the hostname in the session prompt
priority Display the priority in the session prompt
state Display the traffic passing state in the session prompt

“state” will tell you if the device is active or standby.

You can check what’s currently on the ASA with:

asa-1-pri# show run prompt
prompt hostname context
