ASA UPGRADE from 7.1 to 8.4

HI All,

i need to upgrade ASA 5540 from 7.1 to 8.4 for secure connect feature of Cisco Jabber Configuration. Support forum guides that, i need to follow upgrade path from 7.1 --> 7.2  --> 8.0 --> 8.2 -->8.4 and also do a memory upgrade from 1GB to 2GB.

https://supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-12690

I need to use this feature for only three or maximum four users in company then would i really need to do  memory upgrade? or can i go with 1GB memory?
also how i can get the prices of part number "ASA5540-MEM-2GB=" at cisco.com?

Please go through the sh version of ASA and share your suggestion.

Re: ASA UPGRADE from 7.1 to 8.4

Hi Bro

As long as you need to upgrade your Cisco ASA FW to v8.3 and above, you’ll need to run 2GB of Memory.

You can’t check pricing on the Cisco website, but you could always refer to a local Cisco Gold Partner for pricing quotation instead. To my knowledge, the ASA5540-MEM-2GB= is about USD 600. Cisco Gold Partners always gives you the best discount rate, besides always giving you original parts.

By the way, Cisco Jabber can also run on Cisco ASA FW with v8.2.3 as well. Hence, why do you need to upgrade the Cisco ASA FW? However, there’s no harm in upgrading :-)

P/S: If you find this comment useful, please do rate them nicely :-)
