Changing the IP Address / Subnet Mask of a Cisco CSC Module

KB ID 0000781 Dtd 10/03/13

Problem

I had a client re-address their network this weekend, I was asked to make the relevant changes on the firewall. I know the CSC has a web interface, but as I usually work at command line I wanted to work out how to do it that way.

Solution

In the example below I will change the CSC module form 192.168.1.254/24 to 172.16.1.254/16.

1. Connect to the ASA, and check that the CSC module is up and healthy.

Note: Due the the limitations of HTML the output on you ASA will look a little neater like this.
