we have a Cisco ASA5550 and stuck into continuous rebooting loop. it show an error :assertion "_vf_mode_init" failed: file "vf_api.c", line 99
Earlier it has an 4GE SSM module, for some reason we want to utilize 4GE SSM module and we unpluged and after that we face this issue. could some advise in the right direction.
error message file is attached.
Seems like the ASA is crashing, it is better to open a case with TAC to decode the crash file, most likely you will need an upgrade, if it is failing to boot, you will need to pull the file from rommon mode.
