Cisco ASA Config

Current version of my Cisco ASA is 9.0(2).
As I understand it, if I were to upgrade to the latest version 9.1(3), I would have a login issue with ASDM 7.1(5).  I believe I need to require a user name when accessing the device (currently its blank).
----------------------------------
From Cisco site:
•ASDM login issue in 9.1(3) and later—
You can no longer log into ASDM with no username and the enable password.

You must configure ASDM AAA authentication
(Configuration > Device Management > Users/AAA > AAA Access > Authentication and associated username configuration)
and/or
ASDM certificate authentication
(Configuration > Device Management > Management Access > ASDM/HTTPS/Telnet/SSH).

Before you upgrade to 9.1(3), be sure to configure one of these authentication methods.
----------------------------------
My problem/question:
when I access the location indicated, I can edit the items shown but I don't get how to change the configuration necessary for the new version.

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

I have no ASDM available so I cannot make a screenshot, but go to Device Management -> Users/AAA -> User Accounts and add a new user + password, privilege level 15.

Then go to D M -> Users/AAA -> AAA Acess and check "ASDM" and select "LOCAL". You can now try to connect with ASDM and your new username.

Please try to do the above but for telnet first (exactly the same) just to make sure that you have a backup plan on how to reload the unit in case you get locked out :-)
