Re: ASA 5510 w/ Security Plus License lost contexts

You might want to try upgrading your IOS on the ASA, see if this helps, can you verify the firewall mode(single or multiple) you are currently on? is your asa transparant or routed?

Upgrading the ASA from asa708-k8.bin to asa805-k8 worked!  Once I TFTP a newer version (not the latest) but it worked:  Here is the show ver result:  (some parts omitted)

Re: ASA 5510 w/ Security Plus License lost contexts

You're welcome, I believe you are also aware that the amount of peers and vlans also changed by upgrading the software, now you have the number that you should have by having security plus license on asa5510, which is good.
