ASA5520 software and license upgrade a failover pair

Hello,

What is the best procedure to reduce downtimes to upgrade 2 ASA5520 in failover from 7.0.2 to 7.2.2 and to change their activation keys to allow more contextes ?

From what I read, to have no downtime for the software upgrade, we should go from 7.0 to 7.1 then to 7.2

But for the activation key, I only found a procedure for PIX, not for ASA, which gives a few mins downtime.

Is there a way to upgrade the activation keys on a ASA pair without downtime ?

(because if there is a downtime, then we'll upgrade directly from 7.0 to 7.2 and change the activation key at the same time)

Thanks in advance for your output,

Karim

Edit: sorry, just saw I posted in wrong place but don't know how to move it

Hi Raj

Thank you for answering.

I already found this doc, however the thing it doesn't say, is what the best method to upgrade *the activation keys* on a failover pairs to reduce downtime. (it speaks on how upgrade the image)

I only found an older doc about PIX'

regards,

Karim
