Cisco ASA 5520 ASDM Issues

Hello All,

I am having an issue loading ASDM image to my ASA 5520. I know there has been other posts that have the same issue and the resoulution was to download afresh copy of ASDM, but in my case I am getting the same error even with the new ASDM image.

So this is what I seee

ASA(config)# boot system flash:?

configure mode commands/options:
  flash:/FSCK0000.REC         flash:/anyconnect-win-3.1.03103-k9.pkg
  flash:/asa912-k8.bin        flash:/asdm-715.bin
  flash:/coredumpinfo         flash:/crypto_archive
  flash:/disk0                flash:/fl
  flash:/log                  flash:/nat_ident_migrate
  flash:/tmp               

ASA(config)# boot system flash:/asdm-715.bin

INFO: Converting flash:/asdm-715.bin to disk0:/asdm-715.bin
WARNING: BOOT variable added, but not a valid image disk0:/asdm-715.bin
ASA(config)#
ASA(config)#

Even when I reboot the ASA it tells me that it cant find the asdm-715.bin

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

The command you have shown in the above output is used to set the actual OS software of the ASA. Not the ASDM software which is the GUI (Graphical User Interface) of the ASA.

Try this command instead if you want to set the image that the ASDM uses.

asdm image flash:/asdm-715.bin

The command

boot system flash:/.bin

Is used to set the actual software image file that the ASA uses for its operation.

You can view the current settings of both of the above with the following commands

show run boot

show run asdm

Hope this helps
