Converting ASA 8.x bin to qcow2

Post by NitrousOxyde » Wed Jan 17, 2018 2:25 pm

Dear comrades,

Is there any method to convert/unzip Cisco ASA 8.x .bin images directly to qcow2 in order to be used under EVE? There are some manuals, how to convert .bin to .initrd and .vmlinuz files, but as far as I know, they cannot be installed to EVE (EVE requires qcow2 for ASA 8.x). Unzipping is also unsuccessful

Really critical issue for me, need to test some features on certain version of ASA(8.2) before pushing to prod, but still could not find qcow2 for this version(already have for 8.4, but this is quite different from 8.2)

Any help is much appreciated

I already have ASAv, but this is for version 9.x, while I need exactly 8.2 :roll:

Yes, but there were 2 files for 8.0.2 version - initrd and vmlinuz, which does not work with EVE

However, I am talking about 8.2.x version, which I am missing now :?
