TOPIC: which Image to boot..?????

which Image to boot..????? 9 years 11 months ago #30073

Hi All,

I have two Images in the ASA, Is this possible to Put two Boot system Options in ASA.

#Boot system <Image 1>
#Boot system (Image 2)

Will this 2nd Command Over write the command to boot on Image 1.

I need 2 options, if it fails to boot on Image 1 it should boot on Image 2.

How do i do that..???

Cisco's ASA "Command Line Configuration Guide" says that you can enter up to four boot system commands, to specify different images to boot from in order. The ASA will search for the images in order and it will boot the first image it finds.

However, I'm not sure what will the behavior be if the ASA finds one image, boots it, but it fails to boot. Will it try to boot the next image? or will it stop?

Thanks Ammar,

I have the Boxes in active sandby and If i reload the standby box and it comes up with the New Image.

The primary Box will be in the old Image version so what will happen..????

The cluster will break or once the standby up I can reboot the secondary Box. everything will be fine..
