Description (partial)

ASA denies ASDM connections or displays error 'lost connection to firewall' in dashboard.
In logs we can see following messages: %ASA-5-321001: Resource 'asdm' limit of 5 reached for context 'admin'

The issue can be observed when _actively_ using more than 1 (but still less than configured limit) ASDM session. It may also happen with only one active session (and limit of 5).
