Upgrade ASA and

I want to upgrade my current IOS and ASDM to ASA 8.0.4 & ASDM 6.1.3 respectively.

1. How can I backup my current ASDM and ASA ?
2. Any detail steps for the grade ?
3. Will it affect my current configuration after the upgrade, do I need to enable the 3DES license again ?

Many thanks.

No it WONT affect your license - your activation key is unaffected - if you are worried simply issue a show version command and copy paster your activation key, then you could simply add it back, but Ive never seen one break or dissapear.

Thanks.

Using the backup command as per the instruction : write net {ip address}:{filename}, only 7Kb of files was uploaded to the tftp server.

However the IOS that I want to backup is more than more than that. Any idea ?

Open the file on TFTP and it seems that only the configuration was backup, instead of the IOS file.

Is there any way to keep the files so that I could able to restore it back in case of  any problem ??

Thanks

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Run these commands to backup your ASA and ASDM (replace <computer IP> with the right IP and fill in the blanks of the questions when prompted):
copy flash:asa803-k8.bin tftp://<computer IP>
copy flash:asdm-603.bin tftp://<computer IP>

Then, to upgrade your ASA & ASDM version, delete your current files like this:
delete flash:asa803-k8.bin
delete flash:asdm-603.bin

Then, place the new files in the TFTP folder on your computer and run the following commands (replace <computer IP> with the right IP and fill in the blanks of the questions when prompted):
copy tftp://<computer IP>/asa804-k8.bin flash
copy tftp://<computer IP>/asdm-613.bin flash

To verify the new files are there, run:
sh flash
Then, run these commands in configuration mode:
no boot system disk0:/asa803-k8.bin
no asdm image disk0:/asdm-603.bin
boot system disk0:/asa804-k8.bin
asdm image disk0:/asdm-613.bin

Now, save your config by running:
wr mem

Now, just restart your ASA to apply the new software by issuing:
reload
 
Cheers! Let me know if you have any questions!
