Console on FO pix

I have a pair of PIX-535's that I've recently inherited at a new position. The OS version is different between the two. I'd like to upgrade the OS on the failover unit, but cannot access the console port. Nothing is displayed on my session. Is this common? If so, is there some way to circumvent this?

Thanks!

Re: Console on FO pix

Hi,

Is your FO unit is connected with a FO cable and other cables to the primary? If so, please remove all the cables, then reboot the PIX. Please, make sure to use,

9600 bits/s and 8 databits when connection to PIX.

Thanks,

Re: Console on FO pix

Hi Mynul:

I tried that. The PIX that I can't access via the console port is the secondary one - I don't have any problems with the active PIX. I've disconnected all cables, set my terminal software for 9600,n,8,1 and restarted the PIX and I still get no console access. Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

Rich
