first off, i'd go with the 624 b/c it's general deployment whereas 634 is early deployment. you want other folks who need the new features found in 634 to also find the new bugs found in 634. :)

secondly, could you have copied the activation key incorrectly? you can contact cisco to get that number or reinstall the 2mb flash and get it that way....

yes thats now the problem. I have some connection within the cisco organisation so a key is not a problem.

But every flash card has it own serial. But i can find the serial number of this one. Is there a tool for it.

If you have bought a new flash card then find out which software version is on the flash card.

You can install the new flash card and then boot up the PIX. Collect the show version output and check.

If there is some feature you would like to enable, then you can send an email to licensing@cisco.com for that.

If you have software version there like 6.1 then upgrade to 6.2.4 which is the latest GD version (stable). 6.3.x code is still ED stage (Beta).

If you have an older software version on the new flash card then you will have to upgrade to atleast 5.3.x code. Then reload the PIX and make sure it is running fine. You can then go further to 6.2.x or 6.3.x code.

Is there an overview of changes available between 6.2.4 and 6.3.4? I have some problems at a customer site with failover device (admin via PDM and ssh die frequently) ... guess I need to try 6.2.4 and see if that fixes the problem ...
