Re: Upgrade PIX Failover to UR

where did the config come from? the enable password should be either blank, or "cisco". once you are in enable mode, you can use the activation-key command to upgrade, provided you have such a key for that pix

Re: Upgrade PIX Failover to UR

i have some bad news for you.

1: you will never be able to see a prompt

2: you will never be able to use that firewall as a stand-alone device

3: you can *only* use that firewall as a 'Secondary' firewall as clearly stated by the message
