PIX 8.0 and ASDM - not enough flash space

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Lutz Donnerhacke, Aug 27, 2007.

  1. A customer's PIX 525 was upgraded to 8.0(2), because the customer needs IPv6
    with multiple contexts (and the failover option). Unfortunly the ADSM for
    the customers self-managed context can not be stored on the Flash anymore:

    # sh ver
    Hardware: PIX-525, 128 MB RAM, CPU Pentium III 600 MHz
    Flash E28F128J3 @ 0xfff00000, 16MB
    BIOS Flash AM29F400B @ 0xfffd8000, 32KB

    # dir
    5 -rw- 7188480 17:41:21 Aug 24 2007 pix802.bin
    7 -rw- 14xxxx 09:00:03 Aug 25 2007 old_running.cfg
    11 -rw- 14xxxx 09:19:21 Aug 27 2007 admin.cfg
    14 -rw- 12xx 09:53:34 Aug 25 2007 intern.cfg
    16128000 bytes total (8639488 bytes free)

    The ASDM is 5919340 bytes, but

    # cop tftp://217.17.x.y/asdm-502.bin flash:
    %Error copying tftp://217.17.x.y/asdm-502.bin (Not enough space on device)

    What can I do?

    A "squeeze" Command does not longer exists.

    Can you post a "show flash" output to see what files are currently stored on flash?
    Just as an FYI, asdm-502 are for 7.2 versions, you need the asdm-602.bin file.

    hi Lutz,

    First of all please note that for PIX 8.0.2 you need ASDM 6.0.2, not

    6.0.2 is bigger so you will probably still have the same problem, I
    would suggest trying "fsck flash:", if that doesn't help "format
    flash:" (this will erase all your files, obviously).
    Or open a TAC case if you can, looks like it might be CSCsc30079 (not
    fixed yet).

  4. *Argl* Of course.
    Does not help. Problem persists.
    Yep, that's the next try. But I'll not do this without a competent partner
    near by the system if the power fails exactly in this minute. Murphy is
    Thank you.
