Difference between upgrading to 8.0.5 or 8.2.1

Hi all,

I have 2 ASA 5510 running 8.04 in a cluster. I am looking to upgrade the software and saw the 8.05 just released.

Would anyone care to elaborate as to what the major difference between the 2 upgrades are and why I should go with one over the other?

Thanks a bunch.

ASA Maintenance release 8.0(5) has the following new features included:

New Features:

1. Scalable solution for waiting-to-resume VPN sessions

2. DHCP RFC compatibility (rfc3011, rfc3527)

3. Mac Address enhancements

4. VPN filter redesign

5. Pause Frame Support

6. RAS Enhancement

8.0.4 is at 8.0.4(48) and there will not be any more 8.0.4.x.

I'd say go with 8.0.5.

Thanks for the reply.

Is there any reason I shouldnt just upgrade to the 8.2.1.ED?

No reason.

there is always the corner case of hitting a defect that does not exist in 8.0, but I would worry about it.

I hope it helps.
