asa load config from disk1

Hi,

I have a problem with an asa 5540. The internal flash (disk0) is not working anymore.

I would like to use the external disk1 flash to store the startup configuration otherwise every time I reboot I have an empty configuration.

Is this possible? how can I do that? I added the command

boot config disk1:/running-config

but it's completely ignored during startup, also if I issue the command

copy running-config disk1:/running-config

I have the following error

1545 bytes copied in 3.800 secs (515 bytes/sec)open(ffsdev/2/write/41) failed

open(ffsdev/2/write/40) failed

is this error related in some way to the problem?

Another thing: as far as I understood the license is stored in the disk0:, if this is not readable then I load no licence at all, in fact I have this message

This activation key is not valid, use default settings only

this means that once I retrieve the licence I should be able to load the config from the disk1?

Thanks, sorry for the lengthy message.

The description that you give of the symptoms strongly suggests that there is a hardware problem with disk0. If this device is covered under a maintenance contract I suggest that you open a case with Cisco TAC on it.
