    ASA migration options


    Logging on ASA is configured separately on each output. For each output, severity needs to be defined. This is worth remembering that the logging severity defined for particular output takes the logs of this configured severity and is all more specific. So when you define the severity 6 – informational logs for the console, the 6 logs, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and 0 will be sent to the console. If you specify 3 – error logs, the 3, 2, 1 and 0 will be sent.

    To enable logging on ASA:

    ASA(config)#logging on

    Debug logs from console:

    ASA(config)#logging console debugging

    Informational (6) logs to asdm:

    ASA(config)#logging asdm informational

    Informational (6) logs to VTY lines:

    ASA(config)#logging monitor informational

    Debug (7) logs to syslog server and syslog server definition:

    ASA(config)#logging trap debugging

    ASA(config)#logging host inside
