ASA 5512-X an out of date ASDM-IDM?

The cisco ASA 5512-X we have recently purchased comes with an out of date ASDM-IDM. It comes with version 6.6(1) which is not compatible with the asa version 9.1 is this normal?

I haven't opened a new one in

I haven't opened a new one in the past couple of months but ASDM 6.6(1) is compatible with ASA software 8.6(1). That was the version most units were shipping with for a while as it was the initial release that introduced support for the 5500- X series.

If the box shipped new with 9.1 ASA software then the ASDM should be at least 7.1(1) - and the recommended version is 7.2(1). Reference.

It's easy enough to upgrade ASDM - just copy the file over and change the "asdm image" command to point to it.

(By the way, you'd get better visibility of a question like this in the Security - Firewalling forum.)
