ASA 5510 IOS version

Answered Question
Jun 27th, 2007

Hi.I have one quick question.I just got an ASA 5510 revision 7.0 and on the CD that came with it there is something called an ASA 7.2 revision but it's only 5 Mbs large while the one on the ASA is also 5 Mbs large.

As I have never worked with firewalls is that a valid version of IOS and if it is how can I upgrade ASA with it?Thanks in advance for any help.

It is likely that it is a valid version of image for the ASA. I have an image for 7.1.2 that is a bit over 6 MB and an image for 7.2.2 that is just over 8 MB. To upgrade the image you put the image from the CD onto a TFTP server and TFTP the image to the ASA. You may need to configure a boot statement on the ASA to point at the new image. Then save the config and reload. It should come up running the new image.

yes it should be a valid one cause i got 7.0(4) with my 5520 and i recieved 7.2(2) which is 3.5 mb larger in size then the previous one.


ul need a tftp server to do so like mentioned in the other post..

Thanks guys. I just uploaded the image from tftp server and rebooted the ASA and everything works OK.

I'll leave the original IOS in flash for the time being just in case.
