ASA 5505 Flash Erased

Hello

We had several problems with the ASA, continues to reboot and not able to locate the image file we erased the Flash, not the best idea we had this year.

Can you help us bring this dead piece of metal from the grave to a working ASA again.

Thanks

ASA 5505 Flash Erased

Hello

We tried the link and getting this

Forbidden File or Application

Hall of Fame Super Silver

ASA 5505 Flash Erased

Substitute "customer" for "partner" in the above URL. i.e.:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/customer/docs/security/asa/asa82/configuration/guide/admin_trouble.html#wp1076206

When someone with partner access posts a cisco.com URL it will often default to partner view. 98% of the content is equally available from customer view.

This section describes how to load a software image to an ASA from the ROM monitor mode using TFTP.

To load a software image to an ASA, perform the following steps:

Step 1          Connect to the ASA console port according to the instructions in "Accessing the Command-Line Interface" section.

Step 2          Power off the ASA, and then power it on.

Step 3          During startup, press the Escape key when you are prompted to enter ROMMON mode.

Step 4          In ROMMOM mode, define the interface settings to the ASA, including the IP address, TFTP server address, gateway address, software image file, and port, as follows:

rommon #1> ADDRESS=10.132.44.177

rommon #2> SERVER=10.129.0.30

rommon #3> GATEWAY=10.132.44.1

rommon #4> IMAGE=f1/asa800-232-k8.bin

rommon #5> PORT=Ethernet0/0

Ethernet0/0

Link is UP

MAC Address: 0012.d949.15b8

Note          Be sure that the connection to the network already exists.

Step 5          To validate your settings, enter the set command.

rommon #6> set

ROMMON Variable Settings:

  ADDRESS=10.132.44.177

  SERVER=10.129.0.30

  GATEWAY=10.132.44.1

  PORT=Ethernet0/0

  VLAN=untagged

  IMAGE=f1/asa800-232-k8.bin

  CONFIG=

  LINKTIMEOUT=20

  PKTTIMEOUT=4

  RETRY=20

Step 6          Ping the TFTP server by entering the ping server command.

rommon #7> ping server

Sending 20, 100-byte ICMP Echoes to server 10.129.0.30, timeout is 4 seconds:

Success rate is 100 percent (20/20)

Step 7          Load the software image by entering the tftp command.

rommon #8> tftp

ROMMON Variable Settings:

  ADDRESS=10.132.44.177

  SERVER=10.129.0.30

  GATEWAY=10.132.44.1

  PORT=Ethernet0/0

  VLAN=untagged

  IMAGE=f1/asa800-232-k8.bin

  CONFIG=

  LINKTIMEOUT=20

  PKTTIMEOUT=4

  RETRY=20
