Bad magic number when upgrading to pdm-304

Unanswered Question

I am trying to upgrde pdm from 3(1) to 3(4), when I use tftp and try toinstall pdm-304.bin it appears tostart up and load but always ends with the following message:

Received 3152452 bytes

Bad magic number (0x6f6c636e)

I have tried re-downloading it (seval times) trying both http and passive mode ftp. In windows explorer the file size shows as 3079 so it appears that there is a difference in the numer transmitted. I have tried three different tftp servers and the results have been the same. I did already upgrade the os from 6.3(1) to 6.3(5) using the same procedure.

Anyone have any ideas?

I have this problem too.

Hi,

I have faced the same issue.

Are you trying this for the secondary pix ?

Are you doing this from the moniter mode or config mode ?I tried to do it from the moniter mode as my tftp server would not ping . Mine was a corrupted flash .

This is what worked for me.........

Cisco PIX Firewall Software Upgrade Procedure

1. Download the latest files for the PIX: Operating System Image and PIX Device Manager (PDM) Image.

2. Prepare a TFTP server, and confirm that the PIX can access it.

3. Log into the PIX Command Line Interface (CLI).

5. Copy the updated operating system image from the TFTP server to the PIX.
