some versions of java stop the adsm, can you revert back to 6.01?

It may be the security settings in the bowser also, what is your response from the browser?

HI Jovart,

Please try it this way:
1) make your tftp server ready;
2) make your asdm file ready in that tftp server;
3) in ASA5510 command line, 'copy tftp disk0', then follow the prompt;
4) done.

here is a quote example:
ASA5510#copy tftp disk0:

Address or name of remote host []?
Source filename []? asa722-k8.bin
Destination filename [asa722-k8.bin]?
Accessing tftp://!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Writing file disk0:/asa722-k8.bin...

ASA5510#show disk0:
-#- --length-- -----date/time------ path
  6 5124096    Jan 01 2003 00:06:22 asa702-k8.bin
  7 5623108    Feb 12 2007 00:23:48 asdm-522.bin
 10 5539756    Feb 12 2007 00:14:18 asdm-521.bin
 11 8294400    Dec 07 2006 05:47:20 asa721-24-k8.bin
 12 6002680    Dec 21 2006 03:58:30 asdm-52034.bin

23949312 bytes available (38932480 bytes used)

!--- Command to set "asa722-k8.bin" as the boot image.

ASA5510(config)# boot system disk0:/asa722-k8.bin

!--- Command to set "asdm-522.bin" as the ASDM image.

ASA5510(config)# asdm image disk0:/asdm-522.bin
ASA5510# write memory
ASA5510# reload

hope it helps.

kanlue, should he not check his current version before upgrading?
Not to mention all the upgrade prerequisites also..
There are some changes that need reviewing with verison 7...
