I am currently running Cisco CSA version 4.5 and am thinking about upgrading to 5.0.  Is anyone aware of any issues with the new version?

Version 5.0 is a lot more stable and has a lot of added features.

Be cognizant of the added features and only enable what you need.

Also, there are several prominent security issues with CSA 4.5, so you also may want to consider that in your requirements to upgrade.

There are a great amount of features and fixes in 5.0. I did this upgrade a while ago and I was happy to have moved away from 4.5. But this is what I suggest. Instead of doing an upgrade, do a migration to 5.2. 5.2 has some very good features to do with data theft and wireless security control. It however doesn't have a straight migration path. With 5.0, you're still sticking with the old generation CSA and you'll still encounter some bugs and would be forced to upgrade again

With 5.2, note that you'll need to change your base OS to Windows 2003 R2 (revision 2). Plain windows 2003 isn't supported.

Let me know if you have any additional questions but I strongly recommend upgrading to 5.2 as 5.0 is almost a waste
