ASA5520 code upgrade to 9.1(5)

Hello all, just curious if anyone else has seen an issue trying to upgrade an ASA 5520 appliance to 9.1(5) code? We had planned on upgrading our 5520's from 8.4(3) code to 9.1(5). When I attempt to TFTP or use ASDM to copy up the new code image, I get an error as follows:

Accessing tftp://10.10.165.11/asa915-smp-k8.bin...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
%Error copying tftp://10.10.165.11/asa915-smp-k8.bin (This image is not valid for this platform)

I have checked the ASA compatibility doc on CCO, and it indicates that a 5520 with 2G or memory should be able to run 9.1(5). Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

Jeff

You've downloaded the

You've downloaded the incorrect binary image. You need the 9.1(5) without "smp" (Symmetric Multiprocessor) in the image name. The SMP image types are only for the 5500-X series.

Also note that the Release Notes mention that an upgrade directly to 9.1(3) or later would require you to first upgrade to 8.4(6), 9.0(3) or 9.1(2).

Oh man good catch - thank you

Oh man good catch - thank you! I was reusing an image I got for our X series appliances. Thanks for catching that!

yes I did see the step up requirements for migration. Thank you for pointing that out as well, as that would be easy to overlook.
