Downgrade command only works with moving from Pix v7.x to 6.x

To downgrade from Version 7.2(x) to 7.1.(x), you must perform the following steps:


Step 1 Load the earlier Version 7.1(x) image

copy tftp flash


Filename: pix712.bin

Step 2 Reload the device so that it will be use the Version 7.1(x) image.

Step 3 Copy the ASDM Version 5.1(x) image copy tftp flash


Filename: XXX.bin

Step 4 Enter the following command, this will tell the security appliance where to find the image:

boot system flash:/pix712.bin

asdm image flash:/ asdm file

wr mem

Reload the PIX again and you should be running on 7.1(2)


Do make sure to take backup of configuration before performing above steps.

Hope this helps.
