"The CSC and AIP modules must run version 6.0 in order for the feature to work. There is no option for password recovery in version 5.0 for the AIP-SSM or CSC-SSM, because this feature is not introduced until version 6.0."

what version do you have?

I'm not quite sure how to determine that. Therefore I sent the following command to the ASA:

show module 1

Results:

Result of the command: "show module 1"

To get the application version do the following;

ciscoasa# session 1

sensor# show version

If you are not running the correct version you can upgrade there sensor via the upgrade command,
you will need an FTP server with the newer code on it configured to for ftp retieval.

This is what I get after applying the "session 1" command.

Result of the command: "session 1"

Opening command session with slot 1.
Card in slot 1 did not respond to session request.

The card is present and I get a link light when connecting the RJ-45 cable to the network!

This is from your output above;

Did you see this?

Mod Status             Data Plane Status     Compatibility
--- ------------------ --------------------- -------------
  1 Unresponsive       Not Applicable        

It says model 1 is unresponsive could be a problem here. is this new? I would do the following

1) Save your config, (write mem)
2) Enable logging
       config t
            logging on
            logging buffered informational
3) Power down the ASA
4) Reseat the ssm
5) Power on
6) Check status of SSM, does it still say unresponsive?
7) Check log for errors

Is the SSM under contract?

Thanks for your response. Since this appears to be a hardware issue I will conclude our conversation and contact Cisco regarding a replacement.

Can you tell me if reseating this helped, or was a replacement necessary?

Thanks!
