I have a customer who will be taking possession of a 5525-X in late October (they will be ordering it around the end of september). Can it run 8.2.5 ? I have been looking for what minimum version of code that it will support and havent been able to find anything. Unfortunately, I wont be able to get it shipped to me first to work with before having to install it. I havent been able to arrange to get access to one before hand.
I have been continually advised by TAC to stay away from the 8.3 train and only go to 8.4 if there was a feature that I needed that didnt exist in the version of code that I have been using. 8.2.5 has been bullet proof for me and I havent had any reason to move forward to work with the 8.4 train. The re-writing of the NAT rules is one thing that I have heard a lot of problems with.
