PIX 525 upgrade from 6.3 to 7.0: monitor mode or not

Hi, I'd like to upgrade a 525 from 6.3 to 7.0 and but I'm not sure if upgrade in monitor mode is required. The upgrade doc talks about monitor mode for 515 and 535, but it's better to verify

thanks

Re: PIX 525 upgrade from 6.3 to 7.0: monitor mode or not

Hi,

you can upgrade your PIX 525 firewall normally through regular "copy tftp flash"

i believe you are mentioning about http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_tech_note09186a00804708d8.shtml#t2

you do not need to upgrade your PIX 525 through monitor/ROMON mode and a normal upgrade will do; however please make sure the firewall meets the minimum system requirements before you upgrade to 7.x code.

I hope you would have already gone through the minimum system requirements in the above link as well.

Do let me know if you have any further questions

Thanks,
