copy files between Cisco Failover ASA

Hi guys

I made an ASDM upgrade for one of my two CISCO ASA 5520. If I copy a file to the primary ASA's flash, is there any command I can  run on the primary ASA to copy a file to the secondary ASA?

Regards

Hello Luis,

You will need to do it manually on the secondary asa or use the failover exec mate command to do it from the primary

So lets say the TFTP server is 192.168.12.2 and both primary and secondary can access that server.

So from the primary asa

failover exec mate  copy tftp//x.x.x.x/xxxx flash://file.cfg

Hi:

When I introduce the command:

FW-HRJC-01# failover exec mate copy ftp://admin@10.161.1.71/asa825-48-k8.bin disk0:/asa825-48-k8.bin


I get next error:

Address or name of remote host [10.161.1.71]?
?Bad address or host name
%Error parsing filename ()

Any idea about how to fix it?

Thanks!

I answer myself. You have to add the /noconfirm flag to copy command.

I have used the following command to copy a img file directly from one ASA Member to another.

copy /noconfirm disk0:/asa951-smp-k8.bin cluster://<Target Cluster Member>/asa951-smp-k8.bin.

I not 100% sure of the requirement for this to work or over which link the file is copied (Cluster link or Management interfaces)

The devices were running 9.4.1
