Posted on 2010-11-14
Last Modified: 2012-06-21

I have purchased and downloaded latest asdm (asdm-634-53) and  asa software (asa823-k8).

can i upgraded straight to the latest version ?

My current versions:
ASA 7.0(8)
ASDM 5.0(8)

Do i have to upgrade ASA first and then ASDM?

how do i create backup in-case something goes wrong during upgrade
