Description (partial)

When a CTL file entry uses a hostname rather than an IP address for the server address, ASDM cannot parse it and throws an exception:

Exception caught on parsing : " record-entry cucm trustpoint _internal_asdm_CTL_File_SAST_0 address haha" (509)

java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "haha"

	at java.lang.NumberFormatException.forInputString(

	at java.lang.Integer.parseInt(





To reproduce:
- Go to Configuration > Firewall > Objects > Network Objects/Groups
- Create a named object, for example, test =
- Go to Configuration > Firewall > Advanced > Encrypted Traffic Inspection > CTL File
- Click Add to add an entry to the CTL file
- ASDM doesn't allow to enter a hostname, only IP address, so enter, OK the dialog
- Apply changes. ASA automatically converts to "test"
- Click Refresh ==> the new entry is not listed in the CTL file table and the exception is shown in the ASDM console.
