not for the access-lists themselves.

Be advised to have a backup though - its always good practice.

Hi amady,

too long back my friend, i caught u here finally [Smile]

before upgrading make sure ur PIX's hardware is supporting version 7.x (both 501 & 506 aren't support) and has a minimum supported RAM.

access-list wouldn't be affected but make sure u don't have any conduit commands configured.

all the luck..

Hi,

You should require min 64 MB RAM to upgrade to 7.2(2)

steps in simple words,

1) reboot the pix
2) press 'esc' key
3) connect your system to pix on any of the interface ( e0 or e1)
4) once you are in rommon mode then select the interface where you have connected to your system ( say you are connected to e0)
5) type the following inteface 0
5) provide ip address for PIX -x.x.x.x
6) provide tftp server IP - (your host IP in the same range)
7) provide the file name in tftp server (pix722.bin)
8) then type "tftp" and enter.

your image will upgarded.

but make sure that you have enough RAM to upgrade the image.

access-list will not be affected with this upgrade

Cheers

WR,

Hi Parvees,

you said """ You should require min 64 MB RAM to upgrade to 7.2(2)"""

as per my moderate knowledge, minimum RAM requirement rely on the running License on the box so it vary from one PIX to another.

Thx,

Hi Cipher,
Yes, you are correct . What i mean to say is that min requirement is 64 MB (for restricted license . and 128 MB for Unrestricted.

with 32 MB it is impossible to use 7.2 image.

hope this is clear to you

Cheers,
Parvees
