PIX 520 rebooting with watchdog timeout failure

Unanswered Question
Oct 15th, 2007


I have a pix 520 which has been upgraded to pix OS version 6.3(1). The pix is constantly rebooting with a watchdog timeout failure message. I am not sure if this is a bug.



I have this problem too.

Recursive rebooting of pix firewall due to watchdog timeout, could be because of two possible causes, first is hardware issue and secondly and most commonly software issues. The watchdog timeout has many bugs associated with it on various causes. Could you send the tracebacks you are getting.

Hi MZ,

Did you ever resolve this issue? I have exactly the same issue. We have already replaced the chassis but still happening?
