Hello,

Hello,


      My company recently purchased a Cisco PIX-520.  I am unfamiliar

Purchased? Then it must habe been damned cheap. :-)
The PIX-520 is out of support from mid this year.

with these machines.  During the boot process I get the following
message.  I am not sure what the issue is.  Is it the Flash Card (the
bios lists it as obsolete)?  Is it the PIX software, could an update be
needed?

      The flash card is P/N 86997.  It appears that it is 2MB.

PIX-OS 6.x requires a 16 MB flash card. 

So for PIX-OS 6.x get a 16MB flash card, or exchange your PIX-520 for an
PIX-515e or PIX-525, or even better go for an ASA-5510 Sec+ or ASA-5520.
Then you can use PIX-OS 7.x (IOS-like CLI)

If you want to stay with your PIX and Flash, then go for PIX-OS 5.x or 4.x.
:-)


Thank you in advance,

Scott Geer

So long,
        Andre
