Upgrade firmware on ASA?

I am familiar with upgrading firmware on Cisco routers but I am trying to update the firmware on an ASA - I downloaded the firmware and have it on the flash of the device but I don't see a line in the running config that calls out the image at boot like a router does - am I missing something or does it just boot from only a single image in flash? I see a line in the config that calls out the asdm image but nothing for the other.

Re: Upgrade firmware on ASA?

make sure you have the image - disk0

asa#dir

Directory of disk0:/

83 -rwx 398305 09:02:36 Apr 19 2007 sslclient-win-1.1.0.154.pkg

Take notes of your currect boot variable statement

asaw# show run | inc boot

boot system disk0:/asa803-k8.bin

issue new boot statement

asa(config)# boot system disk0:/newimage.bin

also you need to tell asa which asdm image will be using, I assume you have downladed asdm image as well based on asa code.

Take notes of yur currend asdm statement

asa# show run | inc asdm

logging asdm informational

asdm image disk0:/asdm-603.bin

issue new asdm statement

asa(config)#asdm image disk0:/new_asdm_image.bin

here is some instructions on upgrading process examples.

Re: Upgrade firmware on ASA?

Thanks, that helped, there did not appear to be a boot line there before I put it in - sh run with the boot option didn't show anything until I put the new line in.
