Pix 515E FO Rebooting problem

Hi

The Pix 516E with a FO license, fails to load the pix image from the flash. I can enter the monitor mode, configure the settings to download a new image from from a Tftp server, but nothing happens cannot even ping the tftp server. See attached debug output.

Re: Pix 515E FO Rebooting problem

hi, looking at your debug text this is what is wrong.

You have

monitor>interface 1 -------> pix inside interface#

monitor>address 10.0.0.155 ---> this should be address of PIX interface1

monitor>server 10.0.0.155 ---> tftp server address

this is why you cannot ping .

enter as follows:

monitor>interface 1

monitor>address x.x.x.x ----> address of PIX inside interface

monitor>server x.x.x.x ----> address of tftp server

then try ping the tftp server, if successful proceed with upgrade.

ensure new code is in root of tftp server.

question:

are you currently running 6.x code? I see you are trying upgrading to 7.x

ensure you meet all HW requirements for 7.x on your pix. Refer to this

page for information:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/pix

memory upgrade for 515 specifications before going to 7.x code.

You should again put old IOS and boot the pix once.

Once pix will boot by old IOS, upgrade it after new IOS.

Just make sure you use a different IP address in the PIX interface. Right now you are putting the same IP address for the PIX interface and the TFTP server. Those addresses should be different.

Re: Pix 515E FO Rebooting problem

Hi

Have put the correct addresses enabled icmp debug. initiated a ping but with no result. The pix FO does not even attempt to ping the remote server. Could this be a hardware problem?

monitor> address 10.0.0.154

address 10.0.0.154

monitor> gateway 10.0.0.155

gateway 10.0.0.155

monitor> server 10.0.0.155

server 10.0.0.155

monitor> trace 10.0.0.155

trace on

monitor> ping 10.0.0.155

Sending 5, 100-byte 0x8468 ICMP Echoes to 10.0.0.155, timeout is 4 seconds:

Re: Pix 515E FO Rebooting problem

did you do interface 1 as this is your inside interface

e.g

monitor>interface 1

after you define interface do the rest of the script and try again.

[EDIT]

is your tftp server also a gateway?

again, as long your tftp server is in the inside 10.0.0.0 subnet your script you be

monitor>interface 1

monitor>addres 10.0.0.154

monitor>gateway 10.0.0.154

monitor>server 10.0.0.155

Re: Pix 515E FO Rebooting problem

Mabrouk, correctiong from my previous post.. you don't need to define gateway. Try this .

monitor>interface 1

monitor>addres 10.0.0.154

monitor>server 10.0.0.155

Re: Pix 515E FO Rebooting problem

As long as the TFTP server is in the same IP subnet you don't need a gateway.
