PIX Downgrade from v701

Hi, I know this is nor right, I upgrade to v701 with 32MB memory, and now PIX is in a rebooting loop.

I can get to monitor mode, any one know the downgrade from monitor mode. Or how could I get out of the loop. If I get to command line I can downgrade

Best regards

Re: PIX Downgrade from v701

register the pix on the cisco site as if you are upgrading the license to 3 des. (use the serial number from show version)

They will send you the activation key. (hope you have a cco account)

Then use the activation key comman to enter the key.

If you remember the former key when the pix was running 6.3(x), you can enter this .

Re: PIX Downgrade from v701

Hi, Thanks for the update,

I thought about it and was reluctant to go that way cos, there is a downgrade special command in the commnad line.

But, this time I had to make up my mind and just did it, yes it works but it ask for activation key

Thnaks again
