flash on PIX-520

If I move a Flash card from one PIX-520 to other PIX-520 for a hardware problem to keep the same version of Cisco secure and same configuration.

Do I need of a new activation key because I change however the serial number ?

Thank you

Lorenzo

Re: flash on PIX-520

The activation key is based on the serial number of the PIX, and the serial number of the PIX is on the flash card. theoretically if you take the flash card out of one PIX and put it in another that new PIX *should* have the same serial number as the old one. Again, theoretically you could then use the same activation key off the old PIX on the new PIX and get the same features, provided the hardware (PIX model) was exactly the same.

I say "theoretically" only because I've never actually done it, but it should work.

Hi,

now you can be "sure".

The serial number is embedded on flash card because I have tried this morning about it.

Thank you

Lorenzo
