Description (partial)

ASA in multi context configuration, even though the "logging permit-hostdown" command is set, it doesn't disable the feature to block new connections when a TCP-based syslog server is down.

Regardless if the command is in placed, ASA drops new conns and produces "Disallowing new connections" messages.

ASA in multi context configuration, with the "logging permit-hostdown" command set, and external syslog server setup using TCP.

Unfortunately, this problem has not been reproducible yet in our local TAC labs.
