Trying to upgrade this one 5505 from 8.2.1 to a current (and patched for the recent RCE/DoS vulnerability) version. I have done 3 or 4 others this week but this one is giving me problems.
I tried to go from 8.2.1 to 8.4.6 to 188.8.131.52 which I believe is the recommended progression. When I tried the move to 8.4.6 it hung on the reboot and I was stuck in rommon. I was able to recover using TFTP to load 8.2.1 again (and have also been able to recover from rommon to 8.2.2) but when I then tried a more subtle upgrade from within the OS (to 8.3.2) it still hung on the reboot.
Is this a flash issue?
when I try FSCK it shows no errors...
dosfsck 2.11, 12 Mar 2005, FAT32, LFN
/dev/hda1: 62 files, 51576/62078 clusters
fsck of flash: complete
There is a huge crashinfo but I dont know how to make heads or tails of it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Check to make sure your 5505 meets the minimum RAM requirements for the upgrade. One of those required you to add more RAM.
In addition to that, check register setting as well. If I remember correct, it supposed to be is 0*1. Also point ASA to correct image ‘boot system disk....’ . If all looks good try to format flash and upload new code.
Are you using the same images you downloaded for the other ones? If not, it could be a corrupted download. Verify the MD5 checksum against what's posted on the downloads page.
I did verify the integrity of the images I had uploaded, no issues there.
I wound up formatting the flash, going back to the base code so I could reload the config, and then upgraded multiple times without issue.
thanks for the help!
