PIX515E OS 8.02 w/ASDM 6.02

Unanswered Question
Aug 21st, 2007

I am starting to notice some issues with this release. I have already noted that there appears to be issues with telnet/ssh/asdm access through an IPSec client to the management IP address of the PIX. I am also noticing that everytime the firewall is reloaded it looses the isakmp nat-traversal 20 command and I have to reapply it after the firewall has booted. I am 100% absolutely certain that I am writing to memory after each time I had to reinsert the command. Any one else out there experiencing issues with OS 8.02 on a PIX platform?

Run SH VER command: how it boots that it will show you in 3-4 Line of output.

Sh file system : It will show you FLASH: " RW or RO "

What is in from of Flash checkout, it must be RW. if it is RO than change permission as RW.
