I use ASA 5505 boxes to connect three branch offices back to the main office location. I am upgrading to asa804 with asdm615 to gain EIGRP functionality and better ASDM GUI, among other features.
The main location upgrade went perfectly. I moved both images over with TFTP, changed my boot settings with the CLI and was good to go. One of my remote sites is giving me a headache though. I was able to TFTP the ASDM image over no problem, but I cannot transfer the ASA image.
The device has PLENTY of free flash. I tried using TFTP, HTTP and ASDM to do the transfer but no luck. It’s as though the device does not want the file. I have checked the file for corruption and also tried physically uploading via ASDM from the LAN at that location thinking that perhaps the WAN hop was the problem. NOTHING… and I am very confused!
I’m not sure if this matters… but the main location has a 5505 with 50 client licenses whereas the remote 5505s only have 10 client licenses. Perhaps it is a licensing issue? That would be a real bummer…
