Re: Unable to boot asa5520

Hello

You may need to upload an image via rommon.Please get into rommon mode and do the following:

Download an image from cisco.com and put it on a PC

Plug the PC into port 1 and put an IP address of 192.168.1.2

Install a TFTP server on the PC

On rommon on the ASAPut the following commands

int gig 0/1

address 192.168.1.1

server 192.168.1.2

file

tftp

That will load the image to the ASA and boot it up, make sure to upload the image again and save it to flash, also make sure that the config-resgister is set as 0x1, you can double check it with the show version.

Any questions let me know.

Re: Unable to boot asa5520

Hi Siva,

Use the commands as below:

rommon #1> ADDRESS=192.168.1.10
rommon #2> SERVER=192.168.1.1
rommon #3> GATEWAY=192.168.1.1
rommon #4> IMAGE=asa805-k8.bin
rommon #5> PORT=Ethernet0/0

rommon #6> tftp

Please ensure you specify the IP addresses/interface name/Image name based on your condition. Once you enter the "tftp" command the ASA will download the image you have specifed from the server and boot using it.

Please enter each of the commands in entirety and do not use "short" commands as they will not work in rommon mode.

Let me know how it goes!!

regards,

prapanch
