Will a configuration file from a PIX 515e running version 7.2 be able to run on a new ASA 5510 running ver. 8.2? In other words, can the configuration file be successfully merged with the configuration file on a ASA 5510, or do I have to reconfigure the named objects, ACLs, VPN configurations, etc.?
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).
First upgrade the PIX to 8.2.
Then you can manually configure the interfaces on the ASA and copy and paste the rest from the PIX.
