We have a 5525 that has not been deployed to production yet so we're using it in the lab. I want to lab some upgrades from 8.2 to 8.6 for some customers but the 5525 comes loaded with 8.6. Would there be any problem with reimaging the 5525 with 8.2? I'm just not sure if there would be an issue with this new hardware running that old software.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks, according to Cisco documentation you are correct. Here's a nice link to ASA compatibility -
If you copy one of your 8.2 configuration files into the startup-config of one of the lab 5525X's, it -should- parse the old config and covert it to the current syntax where applicable.
Worth a try if you have a lab handy!
