No boot info on ASA 5505

Hi all,

I received a firewall ASA 5505 and I have a problem with it. It always boot on rommon. When I do show boot I get those informations:


ciscoasa# show boot

BOOT variable =
Current BOOT variable =
CONFIG_FILE variable =
Current CONFIG_FILE variable =

 

I'm really confused on why it doesn't have any values registered for the boot.

 

Thanks,

Francis

Hi Francis,

Usually the firewall boots with the  the first application image that it finds in internal flash memory.

Try the following:
>Set the boot variable as:

 

hostname(config)# boot system url

url being:
 

{flash:/ | disk0:/ | disk1:/}[path/]filename

>Save the configuration:

hostname(config)# wr mem

>Now confirm that the boot image has been set:

show bootvar

Once done, reload the ASA and check if it is still going to the rommon mode.

Regards,

Shrinkhala
