How To Run ASA in GNS3 in mult
I have successfully got Cisco ASA simulated in GNS3. However, each time I try run the ASA in multiple mode I get the following error message:
ciscoasa1(config)# mode multiple
The activation key for this product does not allow security contexts
There are a few solutions on GNS3's site but they seem to suggest adding the following configuration 'When the Window Opens', but I don't know what that means.
ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:00:AB:CD:10:10
ifconfig eth1 hw ether 00:00:AB:CD:10:11
ifconfig eth2 hw ether 00:00:AB:CD:10:12
ifconfig eth3 hw ether 00:00:AB:CD:10:13
ifconfig eth4 hw ether 00:00:AB:CD:10:14
ifconfig eth5 hw ether 00:00:AB:CD:10:15
ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig eth1 up
ifconfig eth2 up
ifconfig eth3 up
ifconfig eth4 up
ifconfig eth5 up
cp /asa/bin/lina /mnt/disk0/lina
cp /asa/bin/lina_monitor /mnt/disk0/lina_monitor
Can someone please help?

I also found these activation keys;
Activate the licenses using below codes:
activation-key 0x4a3ec071 0x0d86fbf6 0x7cb1bc48 0x8b48b8b0 0xf317c0b5
activation-key 0xb23bcf4a 0x1c713b4f 0x7d53bcbc 0xc4f8d09c 0x0e24c6b6
Can someone tell me where to apply them?

It accepted them in config mode, however, unfortunately I still get the same message when trying to change the mode from single to multiple.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
Where did you source the keys? Why are there 2 I'm wondering?
Did you reboot the asa after applying the keys?
Just for a test apply 1 key and reboot, if not working apply the 2nd key and reboot...
Yes I rebooted, but no luck.....
I think the problem might because I'm using a 'kernel' for linux and I'm running the ASA on Windows 7:

Ok not sure I can assist from here, obviously this is GNS based stuff, have you confirmed from the site you obtained the keys that the versions/configs are all the same? Sorry not up to speed on GNS stuff unfortunately...
smckeown777, you got it.
I just needed to reboot twice. It works.
