Upgrade a ASA5505 ADSM Image using CLI

Hello,

I am in the middle of software upgrade on my 5505 SEC+. I already upgraded ASA image from v.7 to ASA 8.0(4) using ASDM. The problem is that I missed second part of upgrade and I did not upload ASDM 6.1(5) so right now I can get access to ASA only using CLI - the old ASDM is v.5.2 and it does not support ASA v.8.x. I cannot load web-based interface as well because after authentication the browser display error 404 (https://192.168.2.1/admin/public/index.htm) - The requested URL was not found on this server. So I guess the only way I can go it is to use CLI to upload the image to ASA or maybe I can fix the problem with web-based interface if I can enable it?

If I'm going to use CLI to upload the image I will need detailed instructions as it is my first Cisco and I don't know how to use TFTP, where should be image located, what is the patch etc. I do have asdm-615.bin image located in c:\tftp-root folder. I downloaded and installed #com TFTP server which is up and running now but I have no idea what to do with it.

on ASA cli (in exec mode) try this

copy tftp flash

// it will ask for IP adress of your TFTP server
// then for name of the image
// after sucessfull uploading, do this

configure terminal
asdm image disk0:/name_of_your_image.bin
exit
write mem

// I hope this helps, if not reload ASA
reload

Excellent!

Just one quick question before I close this one - is the procedure similar to this to upload ASA image? Are the commands the same? Thank.
