CONFIGURE HOSTNAME, USERS, ‘ENABLE’ PASSWORD & DISABLE ANONYMOUS REPORTING

Ciscoasa> enable
Password: cisco
ciscoasa# configure terminal
ciscoasa(config)#
***************************** NOTICE *****************************
Help to improve the ASA platform by enabling anonymous reporting, which allows Cisco to securely receive minimal error and health information from the device. To learn more about this feature, please visit: http://www.cisco.com/go/smartcall

Would you like to enable anonymous error reporting to help improve the product? [Y]es, [N]o, [A]sk later: N

In the future, if you would like to enable this feature, issue the command “call-home reporting anonymous”. Please remember to save your configuration.

At this point we need to note that when starting off with the factory default configuration, as soon as we enter the ‘configure terminal’ command, the system will ask if we would like to enable Cisco’s call-home reporting feature. We declined the offer and continued with our setup:

ciscoasa(config)# hostname ASA5505
ASA5505(config)# enable password firewall.cx
ASA5505(config)# username admin password s1jw$528ds2 privilege 15
