Here is a step-by-step guide to 6.x to 7.x migration:

Naturally - I would recommend saving a copy of your config and having a fallback plan in the event of any issues.

PIX 6.3 to PIX 7 is automated process

check this link

Regarding PIX 7 to ASA 7 you shouldnt have any issues - syntax and commands are pretty same s

If you need upgrade from pix 6.3 to ASA 7.0 i suggest upgdrade to PIX 7 and then move to ASA


Hope that helps rate if it does

PIX OS version 6 to ASA OS ver 7 - As long as your config does not contain conduits there should not be any problem.

We had a similar migration recently and we had the complete config ready on the ASA first. We tested the basic access-lists and translations in a test environment before deploying it in production.
