Any help is appreciated.
Getting ready to upgrade a ASA 5520 from 7.2 code to 8.x, all because of the IPS module needs to be upgraded from 6.1 to 7.x.
(1) Should I expect a smooth upgrade (from 7.2 to 8.x) on the ASA box? Anyone runs into problem, gotcha kind of thing? ANy problem on the config file not being converted correctly?
(2) For the IPS part, do you or do you not to use the upgrade command within the IPS module? From the IPS's doc. it says to use the upgrade command. From ASA's doc. it says to use: hw-module command. If I understand this correctly, by using hw-module command to upgrade the IPS from within the ASA, it would wipe my IPS config file.Don't want to do that if I can help it.
