SFR uploading issue

Dear sir,  
I uploaded (asasfr-5500x-boot-6.2.3-4.img) image file from TFTP to ASA flash memory, then run execute the following commands:

SW-module module sfr recover configure image disk0:asasfr-5500x-boot-6.2.3-4.img 
SW-module module sfr recover boot

Then, Cisco FirePOWER Services Boot Image 6.2.3 debug was finally displayed.
As I logged in to SFR console, set up all the IP configuration for device and run System install 

When the extraction completed, the device stucks in recover state, and I can no longer log in to SFR console, please help me on this regard.

How long did you wait? It can take several hours.

Re: SFR uploading issue

Hi my sfr module is stuck in init state. Is there any chance to start recovering of sfr module and then to stop it without to erase the configuration. My idea is sfr go in unresponsive state and then to shutdown / reset / reload.

Re: SFR uploading issue

init state is what we normally see during the process of imaging. You first boot the module with the new image and then wait for it to present you with a login prompt. At this point the module will be in "init". You then download and install the system image to complete the process and move to "Up/Up" state.

You can have a look at your module's log from the ASA cli. I usually do the following:

term pager 0
show module sfr log console

It should be a long string of log messages ending with a login prompt.
