The current fxos module assumes FTD on a 2100 platform (and I'm currently
testing support for ASA on 2100). My understanding is that the 4100 and
9300 have a bit of a different architecture from the 2100, but I've not
touched those to be able to say how exactly they differ.
It looks like the initial login layer on the 4100 must be different. Is
there any other "connect" option from either the initial login layer or the
fxos layer, where the actual firewall functions are exposed?
On a 2100 the first layer you connect to is the FTD application (similar to
legacy ASA platform), with a simple ">" prompt and a config syntax like:
> show running-config
: Serial Number: J..........
: Hardware: FPR-2130, 14854 MB RAM, CPU MIPS 1200 MHz, 1 CPU (12 cores)
NGFW Version 126.96.36.199
After that in the fxos layer, the config is more like the the UCS FI:
> connect fxos
Cisco Firepower Extensible Operating System (FX-OS) Software
xxx-fw01# sho configuration
enter bios-policy SRIOV
set acpi10-support-config acpi10-support platform-default
and there's a much more limited command list available:
chassis cli clock
configuration eth-uplink event
fabric-interconnect fault identity
ntp-overall-status registry-repository security
sel server system
tech-support timezone version
