option 2 is to prepared the  flash already done but cookie fail

option 3 fail due to unknown model

option 3-5 is just to copt sysimage to flash..

Re: Installing WAAS software

Well Since option 2 and 3 failed. If you were able to install the software it wouldn't work without a valid cookie for the software to recognized.

I guess the unknown model hardware is causing an issue. MIght be a hardware issue.
