Reading the PIX Flash contents

Any suggestions on how to read what is stored in the pix flash?

Show flashfs only shows file 0 through 5, the origin and length, but how does one decipher what those files are?

Re: Reading the PIX Flash contents

Hello tripplegreen,

Please take a look at

PIX FLASH Partitions

PIX Ver 6.2 and lower (ver 2 filesystem)

file 0: PIX binary image

file 1: startup config

file 2: IPSec key and certificate information

file 3: PDM image

file 4: filesystem record

PIX Ver 6.3 and higher (ver 3 filesystem)

file 0: PIX binary image

file 1: startup config

file 2: IPSec key and certificate information.

file 3: PDM image

file 4: Crashinfo (last saved traceback and show tech output)

file 5: filesystem record.

pdm-pix(config)# show flashfs

flash file system: version:3 magic:0x12345679

file 0: origin: 0 length:1941560 -PIX Binary Image

file 1: origin: 2621440 length:4909 -PIX Config

file 2: origin: 2752512 length:1917 -IPSec data

file 3: origin: 2883584 length:3126944 -PDM Binary Image

file 4: origin: 6029312 length:131072 -Crashinfo file

file 5: origin: 8257536 length:308 -Filesystem record

Hope this helps! If so, please rate.

Thanks
