I have failed to upgrade the software of my AIP-SSM-20 on the ASA. The AIP-SSM-20 had an Image of version IPS-K9-5.1-7-E1.pkg and I tried to upgrade it to IPS-K9-6.1-1-E2.pkg but after the upgrade the AIP-SSM-20 became unusable. I can no longer log on to the IPS Module from the ASA. When I initiated a connection to the module with session 1 command, the systems says card in slot 1 did not respond to system request. I decided to restored the system image from the ASA by using the hw-module module 1 recover configure and hw-module module 1 recover boot commands but has so far failed.When I issued the command hw-module module 1 boot command, the status of the IPS shows recover and would be in that state even for days.And my TFTP server shows that it is transfering the images to the IPS.
I don't know where I have gone wrong and I would be very happy if somebody can give me a procedure that would help me to re-image the software of the IPS.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
