upgrading failover PIx's procedure?

Hi

I'm not exactly sure if I'm thinking about this right, could you please advise?

I have two PIX's running in statefull active/standby failover. I want to upgrade those from 7.0(2) to 7.0(6).

I figured out that what I need to do is:

- go to the standby PIX and do a copy of image into the pix and reload the pix.

- make the standby node (the one I just upgraded) active by doing a "failover active" on the failover device.

- do the same thing on the other device which is now in the standby mode.

and that should not impact my availability, since I will always be upgrading the standby node. could you advise if this is right?

maybe some docs on this?

You are looking to perform Zero-Downtime upgrade. Here is a link which will guide you through the process-

Hope this helps.
