When modeling Cisco ASA firewalls, Spectrum appends
_secondary to the model name to represent when the model is in a primary or secondary state. This is detailed in our TechDocs:
When failover occurs on the primary device, secondary firewall device should become Active and primary firewall device becomes Standby.
The following text: “_Primary” & “_Secondary” is appended to the model name automatically in the topology view.
DX NetOps Spectrum 20.2 or later
Prior to Spectrum release 10.2.2 this was not configurable. Spectrum release 10.2.2 (and greater) has been enhanced to allow for the addition of the _primary and _secondary suffix to be removed.
A new attribute has been introduced on the Cisco ASA firewall modeltype:
suffixFWModeToModelName - attribute id 0x00215325
By default, this value is
true. Change this to
false by using the Attribute Editor on all Cisco ASA models that you want to disable this functionality for.
On the next poll interval the
_secondary suffix will be removed from the model name.
