Are you studying or this VPN5002 is your production device?

VPN5000 series concentrator has been EOL for a long time as per the following EOL notice:

Thank for your reply,

Here is the message that I get when trying to access the link you have posted..

The file or application you are trying to access may require additional entitlement or you are trying to access a file with an invalid name. Additional entitlement levels are granted based on a users relationship with Cisco on a per-application basis.

I have the system itself (  pre  - owned ), and I need to do some work on it..

I am aware it's EOL, but I'm positive that there some people out there that knoe a thing or two about it 

I have some documentation about the product, but also have a slight suspicion that the product might have a hardware malfunction (or not) .

any advice will be more the appreciated ,

Thank you

Re: cannt boot up Cisco VPN 5002

Based on the booting up sequence, if it is stuck at the last sequence that you have posted, it might seem to look like a hardware issue.

I've attached the PDF of the EOL notice for your reference. It's been EOLed since August 27, 2007, so RMA is not even possible.

Maybe someone else has similar issue before.
