I am trying to get experience with 8.4 code on my 5505. I purchased a Cisco 512MB memory upgrade and installed it. It booted up once and I thought I was ok. I then looked down and noticed that all lights were blinking on the front panel and I had no console access.
Since I dont have smartnet on my personal 5505, calling TAC for help isnt an option. That is why I spent extra money on Cisco memory but it looks that didnt help. I am assuming all blinking lights isnt a good thing but I havent been able find an explanation.
I will try reseating the memory to see if that is the problem. I put the ASA on an anti-static mat and had it and myself properly grounded.
If this doesnt fix it, I will return the Cisco memory to the vendor and go back to the original installed memory. The ASA 5505 worked fine on 8.2.5.
Would appreciate any suggestions,
