I need to build an action plan for a Compact Flash upgrade on a running ASA5550 machine.
We do have a compact flash and a reader . unfortunately I didn't find anything useful from Cisco site Our ASA runs 8.2(5)48
- What would be a preferred method ? should we format FAT32 or only FAT16 or insert and format using ASA ?
- Is it possible to insert the new CF into ASA as a user CF and transfer files between old and new CFs and then use user CF as a system compact flash ?
- If we use CF reader ; Is it easier to transfer via TFTP or we should first mount old CF and copy all files off that and then copy to new CF ?
- should we make the flash card bootable ? or just formatting with FAT16 is sufficient ?
