debuggerauCommented:
believe you need 64Meg Ram for that one,
It would be
asdm-613.bin
pix804.bin

for the full version 8's.

Or.
asdm508.bin
pix708.bin

for the last of version 7...

Hi,

My show ver showing  '16MB flash and 128 MB RAM' , Is this enough for upgrading to 'pix724.bin'


"Hardware:   PIX-515E, 128 MB RAM, CPU Pentium II 433 MHz
Flash E28F128J3 @ 0x300, 16MB
BIOS Flash AM29F400B @ 0xfffd8000, 32KB"

Also what is the commnd to see the present .bin file running in my PIX ?
How can I copy that to a tftp server ?

Thanks

debuggerauCommented:
yes, 64Meg is the minimum.

to see the flash, type "show flash".

to copy to a tftp server:
"copy xxxx.bin tftp" and follow the prompts.

with "'16MB flash and 128 MB RAM' " I can upgrade to 'pix724.bin'

See my show flash, I didn't see any thing with xxxx.bin

Hi,

I have two files..
asdm-524.bin and pix724.bin.
Hope I need to apply both the files...or only pix724.bin is enough.

If both the file are needed, I hope I need to apply the pix724.bin first and then asdm-524.bin

One more thing, hope the following steps are enough to perform the upgrade..

1. SSH to PIX.
2. Go to eanble mode
3. go to configure terminal mode
4. copy tftp://192.168.0.100/pix724.bin flash:image
5. reload the PIX

debuggerauCommented:
very good, always the pix first, then the asdm..

Have you got the upgrade guide from Cisco..
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_tech_note09186a00804708d8.shtml

Very helpful..

And no, do not ssh if you have monitor mode..
See instructions above..

Hi,

It worked...upgraded my PIX...

see my show flash

pix# show flash

Directory of flash:/

6      -rw-  5259        12:08:57 Apr 14 2009  downgrade.cfg
9      -rw-  1966136     12:09:16 Apr 14 2009  image_old.bin

16128000 bytes total (5624832 bytes free)

Now I want to apply the ASDM, there is no space left in the flash, shall I delete the image_old.bin from the flash ?
Thanks
