Cisco ASA5510 Serial Number trouble..

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Ambassador Kosh, Jun 10, 2009.

  1. I picked up an ASA5510 firewall the other day used, and though everything
    in it seems great, the reported serial number in a "show version" is wrong!
    The serial number on the chasis is fine, everything about the unit seems
    great, just somehow the reported from ROM is messed up!

    Does anyone have any idea how to correct this, as when I got a 3DES key
    from cisco, and tried to update my firewall, now I have an invalid key.

    If anyone knows how to resolve this, or pointers to where I might find info
    on a resolution, please let me know. Nice firewall appliance, but this
    sure makes it tough to update it..

    Sounds like you bought yourself a counterfeit. You could try getting a key
    based upon the reported serial from the "show version", but I would bet
    money that Cisco has already flagged that serial as counterfeit and they
    won't give you a new key or provide you any support.
