URGENT PIX 515 PROBLEM - NEED HELP !!

Can someone please help with the following error on my PIX 515 firewall:

Rebooting....

Cisco Secure PIX Firewall BIOS (4.0) #0: Thu Mar 2 22:59:20 PST 2000

Platform PIX-515

Flash=i28F640J5 @ 0x300

Use BREAK or ESC to interrupt flash boot.

Use SPACE to begin flash boot immediately.

Reading 1528320 bytes of image from flash.

#################################################################################

imgsum_config: sumval(0x90be) md5(0x3b170a87 0x75b0ff03 0xdde956de 0xb03da047)

imgsum_verify: chksum(0x0 ) md5(0x5cc5d3b8 0x369971a1 0xa5126b8f 0xaf82ed9c)

Checksum verification on uncompressed PIX image failed.

The above error only started this morning. The PIX is constantly rebooting. Has anyone come across this problem and if so can you please provide resolution.

Many thanks for your help/input.

Looks like the image has become corrupted for whatever reason. Hit escape and use TFTP to reload the image.

Looks like the PIX image has been corrupted and therefore is not accepted. Try to interrupt flash boot and load an uncorrupted version of the image into the PIX.

Have a look at

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_tech_note09186a0080094a5d.shtml#monitor

for the procedure to load an image from ROM boot monitor.

Hope this helps

Martin / Mark,

After trying your suggested resolution. I am still encountering the same problem. Any suggestions.

Thanks /

1. hopefully you backed up your config like a good network engineer.

2. verify the checksum the PIX displays upon bootup, with the actual checksum of the image you loaded

3. got smartnet?
