ASA 5512-x ordering

Hi Jonn,

I have just taken delivery of one of these about 3 weeks ago and it came preloaded with the ASDM 6.6 image.

Re: ASA 5512-x ordering

Hi,

Every ASA should come with the ASA Software and ASDM Software.

The software levels with which the ASA is delived might vary depending on the age of the device I think.

I think there should even be the basic image files related to SSL VPNs also.

To get access to the latest softwares in the long run you should have a service contract so you get access to Cisco TAC, software updates, etc

Re: ASA 5512-x ordering

Sir is any document that highlights this stuff ? i am trying to find cisco ass 5500-x ordering guides but couldnt find it.

Secondly Sir, in order to download ASDM, do we need to have service contract or simple CCO account is enough ?

ASA 5512-x ordering

Hi,

I am not sure if there is a document that says ASA comes with ASDM but I think its a given fact that there is always some version of the ASDM software of the ASA Flash memory when its shipped. If not I would imagine it would be a used device.

To download ASA software and ASDM software you need a service contract that is attached to the account at cisco.com.

Hi,

Here is a FAQ style Cisco document related to ASA5500-X Series

ASA 5512-x ordering

As noted already, every ASA sold through authorized channels will ship with ASA and ASDM binaries already included on the internal compact flash (disk0).

It is only necessary to download an new file from cisco.com if you wish to upgrade your ASDM (or if you inadvertently erase yours or it is destroyed due to hardware failure).

A download requires a service contract unless the loss was covered under the initial warranty. The other exception I can think of is when Cisco issues a security advisory (PSIRT) specific to the product. In those cases they sometimes make free downloads available if you are an affected customer.
