I bought a 2nd hand PIX 515 with password enabled. The password reset procedure from Cisco did not work. Because, after tftp'ing the 635.bin, the PIX did not ask for password reset, but asked for the activation key. Happily I wrote this down from the sh ver, so i typed it in, but see, still the [unknown] password ! So, i tried to upgrade the the PIX with 724.bin, what looked good... but: the bin file is copied to RAM and not to flash. Wit this of course the PIX cannot boot. Cisco has a cure, but only from the enable prompt...because I do not have the password , that is not possible for me... Please, I hope that anybody can help me out, beacuse I am in BIG trouble now..
Thanks a lot !! Chris
