Cisco Firewall :: Upgrade From 5505 To 5520 On Network - ASA Firewall Throughput

Feb 27, 2013

I'd like to see some REAL LIFE comparisons of ASA firewall throughput (a bit like this one for ISR G2 Routers - [URL].
The reason I ask is that I recently upgraded a firewall from an ASA5505 to an ASA5520 on a small network where the only outside connectivity was a single 10meg Internet circuit with an IPSEC VPN (not landed on the firewall but on a router) to another site.
When I swapped out the firewall the users noticed a big improvement. The firewall is not doing anything out of the ordinary - no IPS or VPN, just standard state full inspection.

Cisco Firewall :: ASA5510 Secondary Firewall Crashes After Upgrade To 8.4.1

Jun 29, 2011

I have two ASA5510's set up in failover, and the secondary keeps crashing after doing the interface checks when bringing failover up. This only happens if I try to upgrade the image on the secondary to anything newer than 8.4.1 (I've tried with 8.4.1-11 and 8.4.2). The primary one run just fine with new images.
I don't have the exact error right now, as I need to do a screen capture from console. It's just a huge crash dump.Are there anything I might have missed during the upgrade? Should I cold-boot both the firewalls in the correct order?

Cisco Firewall :: ASA Upgrade From 8.2(2) To 8.2 (5)?

Sep 1, 2011

I have never touched a firewall box before but i need to upgrade the IOS on 2 ASAs that are running in production. I am upgrading from 8.2(2) to 8.2 (5).  Just to point out, one of the firewalls is having SSM module with it. Below in the end is the "sh inventory" output.I have downloaded the asa825-k8.bin and asdm-645-106.bin files already on my computer. Two queries to clear off:

1. Wanted to know if I need to download any more files. Like some feature licenses or anything else? I did "dir flash: to see what contents it had already and this was it:

28    -rwx  16275456    02:18:46 Nov 07 2010  asa821-k8.bin
129    -rwx  11348300    04:34:32 Nov 07 2010  asdm-621.bin
3      drwx  4096        08:03:46 Jan 01 2003  log
10     drwx  4096        08:04:00 Jan 01 2003  crypto_archive
11     drwx  4096        08:04:32 Jan 01 2003  coredumpinfo

2. How to I take a complete backup like it works in ASDM v6.2 "Tools->Backup configurations". I was reading thru the RN for doing that and what I could understand, it was talking about some "export" thing but it did not make much sense to me.Below is the sh version and sh inventory from both the ASAs?
FW01# sh ver

Cisco Firewall :: ASA Upgrade From 7.2.4 To 8.2.5?

Dec 4, 2011

I'm upgrading an ASA from 7.2.4 to 8.2.5 due to memory requirements for 8.3. My question is should I upgrade to 8.2.5 or to the interim for 8.2.5.  I would prefer not to upgrade to 8.2.5 and then hit the bug for the ASA leaving connections open and then have to upgrade to the interim anyway.  But I know that it is advised not to upgrade to interim levels unless you have specific requirements or issues to fix.

Cisco Firewall :: Upgrade From 8.2 To 8.6 For New ASA 5515X

Sep 19, 2012

My customer has a rather complex configuration on an ASA 5510 running version 8.2.

They are migrating to new ASA 5515X models which of course only version support 8.6
How can i convert the configuration from 8.2 to 8.6 since the new ASA's do not support the earlier versions?
The X series seems to be a great option for new deployments but what about replacements of existing older models?

Cisco Firewall :: To Upgrade To 2GB RAM In ASA5510

Apr 5, 2012

I am having ASA5510 firewall which has 1GB RAM currently. I want to upgrade to 2GB. When I opened the box, I can see only 1 slot to insert the RAM. I searched in Cisco website and I got to know that I need to use 2 x 1 GB RAM. So, I need to have 2 slots to do that. But,  I am having only 1 slot in the box.

Cisco Firewall :: Upgrade 8.2.2 On ASA5520?

Oct 3, 2011

We have 2 x ASA5520 and I upgraded this to 8.2.2 last year, I see 8.2.5 and now 8.4 is out.  If we are having no issues, is it best just to leave it as it is?  I can see a couple of features I may find useful in 8.2.5, but 8.4 seems like a huge jump and a risky one too.

Cisco Firewall :: ASA5510 IOS Upgrade From 7.04 To 8.2?

May 31, 2011

We are about to upgrade our ASA's from 7.04 to 8.2. Obviously I will be opening a TAC case to assist with the upgrade and I will also be upgrading ASDM software at the same time. These production firewalls are paired with an active --> failover scenario and not active --> active.  I had previously engaged cisco regarding the upgrade and they have recommended an upgrade path to ensure success. Also, I have a pair of test ASA's that I've gone through the upgrade process with - documenting the changes in commands and any changes in my config (I didn't notice any).So, the reason for my post is this: What are the gotcha's that you may have run into when upgrading your ASA's?These are fairly high visibility ASA's and any downtime due to the upgrade needs to be mitaged as much as possible.

Cisco Firewall :: Upgrade ASA 5505 From 8.2.5 To 8.3 Or 8.4

Jan 18, 2012

I have been delaying an upgrade past 8.2.5 because it is stable and I didnt feel like learning a new way of doing NAT because of the way the code was changed.  What is forcing me to go down this path is that I need to be able to let protocol 41 pass through the firewall which doesnt work in 8.2.5 and is what is making me look at 8.3 or 8.4
I know that I will have to install a memory upgrade on both my lab 5505's before I can install the upgraded binary.  Will be ordering that in the next few days.
Any suggestions on going to 8.3 or 8.4 based on the reason for the upgrade ?  I had been told by TAC to stay away from 8.3 but never got a good reason for that.  My lab config (i.e. home ASA) is pretty straight forward (no SSL or IPSEC config), so I would hope it would go fairly smooth.  I had heard a lot of horror stories early on but wanted to see how things had been going for everyone with the later versions of code.

Cisco Firewall :: Getting Failover Working Again After Upgrade From 8.2.2 To 8.4.2

Sep 6, 2011

When we had 8.2.2, we bought a Mobile license to make the iPads running AnyConnect happy. I applied it, but since we'd only purchased one license, it broke failover.  8.4 lets you share tracking licenses, and since we were planning on the upgrade to 8.4.x anyway, I figured no big deal, I'll get that straightened out when I do the upgrade.
Did the upgrade this weekend, and I still can't get things happy, the boxes don't see one-another:

Cisco Firewall :: Upgrade ASA 5505 V7.2.4 ASDM V5.2.4?

I have been browsing the forum and the support notes for a couple of hours and haven't found a definitive answer to my question. Our ASA is on the subject versions. I watched a video on YouTube stating that upgrading the ASA is easiest if you upgrade ASDM, then the ASA. Problem is, I don't think I can upgrade ASDM first because I don't see a version that is compatible with ASA 7.2.x and 8.0.x.
