I have a ASA5505 8.2(5) Apparently it has crashed. On boot is get to "Begin to dump crashinfo to flash...." and hangs forever. All I can do is power cycle it to get to the same point.
Is there a way to skip the dump? I can get to rommon during boot by pressing esc. No changes have been made recently and it has been functioning fine till now.
Please try the following processure:
Get into rommom mode and then try to upload an ASA image from a TFTP server
1. rommon #0> PORT=Ethernet0/0
Link is UP
MAC Address: 001b.d554.512a
2. rommon #1> ADDRESS=10.10.10.1
3. rommon #2> SERVER=10.10.10.2
4. rommon #3> GATEWAY=10.10.10.254
5. rommon #4> IMAGE=tfpt://10.10.10.2/xxxxxx.bin
6. rommon #4> TFTP
Then if you can get this ASA up, copy the configuration stored in flash to the TFTP server ( backup) and finally you can copy it to running-configuration.
Remember to set the image into the ASA :
boot system flash:xxxxxx.bin
