Replacing flash in PIX 535

Unanswered Question
Apr 3rd, 2009

Hi there,

I've been having a problem with one of my PIX 535's where writing the config takes 45+ seconds. I have other 535's where the write speed is normal. I want to replace the flash card on that box but I'm worried about what will happen when I replace it. Can anyone tell me what to expect when I replace that card? Any licensing issues or anything else to be aware of?

This is the primary PIX in a Failover pair. The failover partner is fine.

Thanks in advance,

I think there could not be any problem in replacing the flash in the primary PIX but ensure that you have the same image which you have in the standby PIX.Also the standby unit will act as primary PIX when you are replacing the flash in the primary PIX as you are shutting down the primary PIX.
