I recently got my hands on an old 515 (128Mb RAM/16Mb Flash)that was running 5.2. I successfully upgraded that to 6.2(4), but then decided to put 8.0(3) on it, to make it more "user-friendly" since i am more familiar with the new ASA5500 family and figured 8.0 would have pretty much the same featureset. Anyway, it successfully installed 8.0(3), but now, it is stuck in the reboot cycle
so i got into the RMMON mode and tried to put 6.2(4) back on, but it would not let me do it, because it needs a 4-part Activation Key
This pix is super old and i acquired it for the personal use, so i am not really planning on spending money onf support contract. Is there anything i can do to make this thing boot? Or extract those activation keys?
I had a same problem. I am scared to give you any solution-still let my try. Dont blame if wrong.
Well, did you execute "show version" from any of the earlier IOS. This command returns the activation key for the pix you are using. However, if not, second option is to write to Cisco with your serial number.
You will get the serial tagged on the pix. Or during the boot immidiately before it asks you for activation key (The part of boot process you printed here, is it all/you cut a portion of it?).
If you are not a customer of cisco and dont have id or password, you can take help of someone that can mail the serial to get the activation key. Its no big deal.
But, next time always keep back of this activation key.
And request yourself a new key. For some reason when i requested Version 7 and up, it did not work and said that my serial was not found in the database. After that i got Version 6 no problem. Went back, re-requested Version 7 and it worked. Go figure :)
