I have two ASA's. One is running running ASA version 7.0(7) and the other 7.0(8).
I want to upgrade to a newer version so I can enable hairpinning. To date we have never had to update the ASA version before. Can I upgrade to later version for free? (Doubt it)
What are my options for upgrading? Can I buy a license to allow me to upgrade one firewall to a particular version - one off. Or can I buy a support contract to allow me to upgrade all my FW's for a period of time. We also have switches and routers so if something could cover them all that would be ideal.
What do others do or recommend?
Who ever has the most cost effective and practical and cost effective solution takes the points.
