ASA 5525X - IPS SSM software upgrade Procedure


Currently we have a ASA 5525X running with IPS SSM module on version 7.1.4 which we are looking to upgrade to the lest version 7.1.8

I understand to upgrade the version through CLI we have to run the upgrade command followed by version.

My question is if there is any way to upgrade the software through Cisco IME? I found one document which states to upgrade SSM  but not sure if it refers to signature or software upgrade.

Has one in recent time upgrade the SSM? We have two ASA 5525X with SSM running in active/standby mode. Our plan is

1. Upgrade the SSM on Standby ASA

2. Failover the ASA to the standby ASA on successfull upgrade

3. Upgrade the SSM on the other ASA

Any help or advise would be appreciated.
