ASA 5510 Write memory fails on all saves

Unanswered Question
May 27th, 2008


I've just obtained an ASA 5510 and everything was working fine as far as writing to memory as I was configuring it. Now when I go to save any changes at all I get Error - Invalid Input Detected.

Not sure if it's related, but when I go to "Tools- File management" The only thing listed under Disk0 is marker. I,nva,lid

Any ideas?


I have this problem too.

Try this:

1. check if Disk0 is accessible. dir disk0:

2. Save your config;

3. Disable logging from buffer to flash. no logg flash-buf

4. Run system check. fsck disk0:

5. Last step is to reformat Flash. format disk0:

Hi & thanks,

I completed all these steps including reformatting drive0:

Then I ftp'd the asdm file back over.

I can see the files on drive0: fine through the CLI, but in asdm 5.0 under "File management" it's still not showing any files just invalid marker still.

Any further steps I can take.

Hold on a sec. Do You have this problem with ASDM only?

Try different/latest ASDM version.

Now after upgrading via tftp and putting asdm 602 in disk0, when I run asdm launcher I get an error stating that it's unable to launch because I do not have the appropriate device manager installed. Asdm launcher supports asdm5.0 or higher versions only.
