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?

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.
