I have an ASA5505, where the disk0: (CF) died. Writing brings "I/O error", an attempt to format fails (card is read-only it says). I know that I can change the CF card by unplugging and replugging a new CF card into the CF slot inside the ASA5505. Now I wonder, is there any command or any trick to make the device read the new card?
So far, all attempts to change the card in the running ASA fail: the new card is not recognized. All commands (dir, fsck, format) behave as if the old card is still plugged in (reading errors). When I use the new flash card with another ASA, the card is immediately recognized and used.
Now, is there a way to make the ASA read the new card without rebooting?
Any suggestion would be very much appreciated!
