Pix 535 Upgrade from 6.3(3) to 7.2 with no adequate memory.

I want to upgrade a failover pix 535 bundle with 6.3(3) to 7.2 but I do not have enough memory in the flash, can anyone tell me how to go about this.

Also the flash directory layout is not clear. If I do dir flash or sh flash, the name of the files are not display, please see below

flash file system: version:3 magic:0x12345679

file 0: origin: 0 length:1941560

file 1: origin: 1966080 length:15467

file 2: origin: 2097152 length:1933

file 3: origin: 2228224 length:3152452

file 4: origin: 0 length:0

file 5: origin: 8257536 length:308

Which files can I delete to have more space on the flash.

Thanks

Hello Simi,

You PIX is perfectly fine for upgrade. Please refer to following link-

"PIX 525 and PIX 535 Minimum Memory Requirements"

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa70/pix_upgrade/upgrade/guide/pixupgrd.html#wp1802378

Refer to following link for upgrade procedure-

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa70/pix_upgrade/upgrade/guide/pixupgrd.html#wp1921265

Here is explanation of your current flash:

flash file system: version:3 magic:0x12345679

file 0: origin: 0 length:1941560 -PIX Binary Image

file 1: origin: 1966080 length:15467 -PIX Config

file 2: origin: 2097152 length:1933 -IPSec data

file 3: origin: 2228224 length:3152452 -PDM Binary Image

file 4: origin: 0 length:0 -Crashinfo file

file 5: origin: 8257536 length:308 -Filesystem record

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Vibhor.

Hi Vibhor,

I followed the Cisco upgrade procedure yesterday in monitor mode, no joy, after entring the address ip, server ip then try to ping the server IP from monitor mode, it was abortive. I can ping the server IP address when the PIX is in enable mode but can not ping the server when in monitor mode. As Cisco advice "If you are upgrading from an existing PIX 515 or a PIX 535 with PDM installed, you MUST upgrade from monitor mode.

I have PDM installed on the pix 535.

How can I remove the PDM from the flash and upgrade the PIX in a normal mode?

what command do i need to use to delete the PDM Binary Image?

I have 16 MB flash in my PIX, below is the flashfs on my PIX, I believe if I can remove the PDM Image of 3M on my flash, I should be able to get the Ima
