Re: Need help recover SSG5 after upgrading to ssg5ssg20.6.2.0r7.0

Have you seen this potential solution in another thread?

I had the same issue.

 It seems that Juniper fixed this issue in Release 6.2.0r12.There is a hint in the Release Notes:

"587433-Sometimes after OS upgrade, the firewall did not start up because of a certain condition in flash writing mechanism."

 I was able to upgrade the devices to 6.2.0r12 sucessfully, so I think this issue has been resolved.

Even an upgrade to 6.3.0r9 was possible.

Re: Need help recover SSG5 after upgrading to ssg5ssg20.6.2.0r7.0

I upgraded two of three SSG-20 to ssg5ssg20.6.3.0r9.0 without issue. The third one bricked. I applied the latest Loadssg5ssg20v133.d boot loader but it didn't help. I tried all but a couple of the 6.3 versions including the oldest one with no luck. I finally applied version ssg5ssg20.6.2.0r3.0 and the router booted. The the third one was different having a T1 and an ADSL PIM card installed and it is several years older. I tried removing the cards but didn't help. I received the same Data Abort Exception code(1002) as this customer in this thread http://forums.juniper.net/t5/ScreenOS-Firewalls-NOT-SRX/SSG5-Software-Upgrade-To-or-Beyond-6-2-0r4-0...

Re: Need help recover SSG5 after upgrading to ssg5ssg20.6.2.0r7.0

I'm having the exact same issue with a few of my SSG5 units.

 

Been trying different releases, seems that anything past 6.2R3 is giving the same crash/restart exception code (1002).

 

Just tried 6.2R13 because the release notes had something that looked promising... "662589—Firewall experienced core dump and rebooted the system when accessing the Dlog process."

 

NO LUCK!
