Update ASA5510 IOS

My ASA5510 has this in flash and same in disk0:

A5510(config)# sho flash:

-#- --length-- -----date/time------ path

6 5124096 Dec 31 2002 19:04:48 pix701.bin

7 5919340 May 28 2005 18:16:18 asdm-501.bin

51867648 bytes available (11079680 bytes used)

I'm wanting to upgrade to 7.0(4) or 7.0(4.1), but I'm not sure just what I have to upgrade. Why the PIX code in flash? I will also upgrade ASDM.


Re: Update ASA5510 IOS


In ASA both flash and disk are the same..basically the flash keyword is aliased to disk0..

And regarding the ios upgrades i feel 7.0(4) is better than the other one since its mentioned that it has some bugs which will be fixed on the later releases..

7.0.(4.1) being named as interim release and the bugs on that version will be fixed up in the later release..

Re: Update ASA5510 IOS


My question was what do I upgrade in flash:? I'm PIX savy, but this is the first ASA5500 I've installed. Do I upload the asa704, asdm504 and pix704 binaries to this thing?

Re: Update ASA5510 IOS

Upload asdm504 and pix704 to the asa with these commands:

copy tftp:// disk0:pix704.bin

copy tftp:// disk0:asdm-704.bin

config t

boot disk0:/pix704.bin (you don't need to do this if you cleanup your flash)

asdm image disk0:/asdm-704.bin


The asa is a pix just with a heck of alot more features. The images are the same. You just can't use the extra features in a pix.
