fundamental upgrade question

Per Cisco documentations

Upgrading Between Major Releases

To ensure that your configuration updates correctly, you must upgrade to  each major release in turn. Therefore, to upgrade from Version 7.0 to  Version 8.2, first upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1, then from 7.1 to 7.2, and  finally from Version 7.2 to Version 8.2 (8.1 was only available on the  ASA 5580).

Currently I have various Firewalls running and we would like to get everythign standard at 8.2.5.22

8.1.1-5580

8.0.3

8.2.2

8.2.4

8.2.3

7.2.3

8.0.2

The above documentation it says I need to upgrade to each major release. Yet the last line says one can go from 7.2 to 8.2 (in my case 8.2.5.22)

So I can skip 8.0. on the ASA that have 7.2 running?

also in some documentation the command copy tftp flash is used and in other copy tftp dir.

Which is best practice?

fundamental upgrade question

Hi,

Yes you can upgrade from 7.2 to 8.2.5.x, without issues, its just that the recommendation is to go to the major release first, but this should also not be a problem, as long as you have the correct hardware requirements for the 8.2 release on each firewall. You can check the 8.2 release notes for it.

Hope that helps.
