ASA5520 HA license upgrade from 25 to 100 users
Posted on 2010-04-10
I have 2 ASA5520’s configured for HA Active/Failover setup and need to upgrade my license from 25 to 100 users for SSL. I have a few questions and need clarification before moving forward with the upgrade.
Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 8.2(1)
1. Do I need to purchase 2 separate license keys to install on each of my ASA’s and if the answer is yes does the key need to be register to the serial number of each ASA5520?
2. The key that was issue to me to use for the upgrade was only 11 numbers and letters long. Is this correct or do I need the five-element hexadecimal string with one space between each element for example 0x2e04c541 0x9c0d5591 0x2c405824 0xaaf310e7 0xc01211a2 to upgrade?
3. Could you please provide a good documentation process on upgrading the license for ASA5520’s running active/failover?
