I should upgrade ASA 5550 with nat controller enabled, from 7.2 to 8.x, I've been reading nat is differently configured up from release 8.3. So I choosed to upgrade to 8.2 release, can someone suggest me if there could be any incompatibility configuration issue?
Correct. 7.2 can be upgraded directly to 8.2(5). Please refer to the 8.2 Release Notes which state:
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).
