Migrating from PIX 515e to ASA

I am migrating 2 PIX 515e to the new ASA 5520 / 5510. Can i just cut and past the config from the 515 to the ASA's ? Any issues i need to be aware of ? Looking for a seemless migration :?

I've upgraded a couple of these already, what I did is to copy & paste 2 to 5 lines out of the 6.3 and paste them into the 7.x

Some lines will go over without a problem.  Other lines can be typed using the old syntax, and 7.x will enter the line using the new syntax. (ie when you show the config, you don't see exactly what you typed).

Anyway, each line that doesn't work will probably give you hints on the proper syntax and if there is anything specific that gives you grief you can open a new question for that item.

I hope that helps!

It depends...are you running the 7.x code on your 515?  If you are, then you can copy and paste.

If you're running the older 6.x version of PIX code, then there's going to be manual tweaking to the process...unfortunately, there's no conversion utility to do this.  I've had to do it manually several times and it's not too bad as long as you're familiar with the command syntax...

Thanks. will not be able to upgrade to the 7.X ver because i will need to upgrade the RAM.
Will I be able to copy/pase some of the lines with the current 6.3 code on the 515 to the ASA or will i have  do the process manually.............?
