Upgrading ASA 5520

Just received a new ASA 5520 and I'm trying to update the ASA s/w to 7.2 and the ASDM to 5.2. I have copied the files to flash, but when I run "asdm image flash:/asdm521.bin" I get an error that it's not an image file, and I don't know where to start with the ASA. Any help would be appreciated. I can't find any info in my documentation.

Re: Upgrading ASA 5520

Try this,

To upgrade/install the ASDM follow the example procedure,

ASA(config)# copy tftp flash

Address or name of remote host [x.x.x.x]?

Source filename [pix704.bin]? asdm-504.bin

Destination filename [asdm-504.bin]?

Accessing tftp://x.x.x.x/asdm-504.bin...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Upgrading ASA 5520

If you already followed proper steps/procedures to copy the image in, just like how you transfered (tftp) the ASA 7.2 image file which was working fine, then you might need to check the asdm file again for correct image size, extra filename characters or missing .bin extension.

Re: Upgrading ASA 5520

I'm having the same exact issues here.

current asa5510 files are

asa: 7.0(4)

asdm: 5.0(4)

i'm trying to upgrade to 7.2 for asa and asdm and when I try to upgrade asdm, I get a image not valid error mssg in the cli.

the disk0: is big enough to accomodate multiple asa and asdm images
