You know how it is? You are typing so fast making changes in you cisco gear you not always pay attention to which mode you are in? Doing config-command in exec-level, exec-commands in config-level and adding “do” in front just to make them pass? Wanna know if that happens to fast and you are in the wrong place doing the wrong time?
Below I am in system context of a multi context ASA firewall. My intention is to do something with a context. I go into config mode and then into the context definition of the context I wanna change. What if I get interrupted or whatever and enter the “conf t”-command in the context configuration mode?
act# sh mode
Security context mode: multiple
act# conf t
act(config)# context LEFT
act(config-ctx)# conf t
INFO: Converting t to disk0:/t
WARNING: Could not fetch the URL disk0:/t
INFO: Creating context with default config
INFO: Admin context will take some time to come up .... please wait.
Congrats! Your firewall is gone!
