Cisco ASA and 169 addresses.
Posted on 2013-11-01
Our new ASA that has been installed into a new office is causing issues with the LAN.
We don't have DHCP setup on the firewall or have an DHCP/DNS server in this site yet.
We have 2x switches 172.19.4.4 and 4.5
The GW/ASA is 172.19.10.15
Statics are configured on the clients with google DNS and GW.
When the firewall is disconnected from the LAN the switches and client can route and ping internally fine. The astatic ips show in the network properties correctly.
When the switches or clients/hosts are connected into the firewall (vlan1 at present) the firewall (happens after a reboot) picks up a 169. ip address and is shown as autoconfigured on the PC. The static Ip also shows as auto config.
I am 100% sure this is the firewall. Its a managed device and currently the managed co (after 2 days have no ideas).
