ASA 5505 ASDM upgrade

I have successifuly upgraded ASA and ASDM image. My question is how to make it to boot it as default when you do a factory reset of the device. For the ASA image I found out that it will boot the first image it founds on the flash, so I left only the latest bin file and if I do factory reset it boot the latest. But for ASDM it still boots the old one, because there is no "asdm image disk0:/asdm-645.bin" command in the config. I`m not sure how, because I only left the new ASDM bin image. Is there any variable or something that still points to old asdm image?

My ASA version is 8.4(2) and ASDM 6.4(5). The old one was ASA 8.2 and ASDM 6.3.


ASA 5505 ASDM upgrade

Hi Mihailo,

Follow this steps:

ASA(config)# boot system flash:\asa-842-k8.bin

ASA(config)#asdm image disk0:\asdm-645.bin

ASA(config)# write memory

After this reload the firewall, it would come up with 8.4.2 and then open a browser window and type in https://

select install and run option, it should now pick up the new asdm.

Hope that helps.



Thanks, Varun Rao Security Team, Cisco TAC

I did that, but when I do factory defaults it loads the old ASDM 6.3!
