Getting ASA 5505 firmware updates

Unanswered Question
Jun 20th, 2011

We are a relatively new Cisco partner. We used to work with CDW and now we are buying from distribution and selling directly. We buy a lot of ASA 5505 units from D&H.

My question is, aside from the disc that comes with the unit where do we download the latest firmware image and management software? It appears you have to have a contract ID to get these through the Cisco website. Do we not get "car blanche" access as a Cisco partner to these resources?

Also doesn't the Cisco ASA 5505 at least come with a license for the latest firmware? Many ship with very old software and even old CDROMs.

I have this problem too.

Matthew,

It depends on where the units are shipped from.  It is a known fact that the discs don't always have the latest code - that applies pretty much for any product.

We just have to go to the vendor's site and download the latest code.

Here is the link for the ASA5505 code download.

You need a valid CCO ID and smartnet contract for the particular device to download the code.
