IDSM-2 re-image issue

Unanswered Question
Feb 1st, 2010

Hi Netpros,

I am getting this error when I trying to re-image the IDSM-2 in maintenance partition. Actually I dont know the password for the administrator account and re-image was only option according to documentation. This is the step i am following:

[email protected]#upgrade ftp:[email protected]//WS-SVC-IDSM2-K9-sys-1.1-a-6.0-2-E1.bin.gz --install
Downloading the image. This may take several minutes...
Password for [email protected]:

ftp:[email protected].198//WS-SVC-IDSM2-K9-sys-1.1-a-6.0-2-E1.bin.gz (25662K)
/tmp/upgrade.gz           [########################]   25662K | 8838.99K/s
26278451 bytes transferred in 2.90 sec (8838.70k/sec)
ERROR:  /tmp/upgrade.gz: not in gzip format

Am i missing anything?

Thanks

It looks like your commands and the image file are correct.

Did you boot the IDSM into the maintenance partition before you started?

from the router:

hw-module module (module number) reset cf:1

after upgrading reboot the IDSM into the application partition:

from the router:

hw-module module (module number) reset hdd:1

Yes I did exactly what u have mentioned, but the ERROR message

in the end is strange isnt it.

Please let me know if anyone has come across similar kind of problem.

Any feedback appreciated.

Thanks

It looks like you are following the instructions for installing an IDSM system image in this guide:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/ips/6.0/configuration/guide/cli/cliImage.html#wp1031992

If you have performed each step as described and are still getting this error message, you might want to open a TAC case on your IDSM.

If your IDSM is defective, they can RMA it (assuming you have a maintainence contract).
