default password - read the directions

Folks the inquiries about the default password... Sigh- read the directions.
Here is how to make it work... BEFORE you launch the AMI you must click advanced details and ADD a zero day configuration via text entry. Once you do connect via SSH and the username is admin. That said I was a victim too on the first try.


Really close to the physical rackmount version

Using these for work for most of the year now with a site-to-site tunnel from an asa-v in us-east-1 to an asa-v in us-west-2 as well as several incoming site-to-site tunnels and remote access VPN on both and Make sure you know what you're're comfortable with Cisco config via user data (and later ASDM if needed), you have compared what ASA-v doesn't provide, etc. otherwise you'll give undeserved 1-star reviews like those before. Only issue seen so far is Syslog can die with lots of traffic around a month in (204) or several months in (207) which requires a restart of the appliance. I'm hoping fixes that. Other than that a ChangeLog for each AMI version would be nice to see.

It's easy to manage because ASA OS is same as appliances.
I think ASAv is supported via a Smart License model.
