8.0 to 8.2 upgrade: ¿would it affect configuration and/or licensing?

Hello team:

I am planning the upgrade of an ASA 5550 Active/Passive cluster from 8.0 to 8.2 according to the "zero downtime upgrade" documentation available in the web.

I do not have another cluster for comprehensive testing, but I executed a simple migration procedure on a tiny 5505 and neither licensing features nor the configuration (the command sintax) were affected by this process. I know this is something to care about if you go to 8.3, but this is not my case.

I browsed the release notes of 8.2(5) and no special disclaimer was found by me with respect to this release. So everything should work just fine, but I would like to double check for input with respect to these two subjects:

1.  ¿Will the licensed features (vpn, concurrent connections, etc) be preserved?                 

2. ¿ Will the configuration be preserved ?

Your recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance.

An ASA 8.0 to 8.2 upgrade should not affect configuration or licensing. I have done it many times without any problem. Just follow the published procedure carefully and you will be fine.

While you are working on the boxes, I recommend putting ASDM 6.4(7) on them (if it is not already in use) as it is the recommended version for all 8.x releases.

Thank you Marvin! I just wanted to double check with someone that have experienced such un upgrade.

And, yes. I was planning to move the current ASDM to 6.4(7) as well.

Best regards, Rogelio
