Document ID: 71928
This document explains how to upgrade or move a configuration from a PIX Security Appliance that runs software version 6.3 to a new PIX Security Appliance that runs software version 7.0.
Note: Administrators who upgrade software version 6.2 or 6.3 to version 7.0 on the same PIX device should refer to the Guide for Cisco PIX 6.2 and 6.3 Users Upgrading to Cisco PIX Software Version 7.0.
This document is designed to assist administrators with the migration of a PIX configuration to a new appliance. This document should not be a replacement for the documents listed here. It is strongly recommended that you read and understand these two documents before you upgrade and use PIX software version 7.x.
- Guide for Cisco PIX 6.2 and 6.3 Users Upgrading to Cisco PIX Software Version 7.0
- Cisco PIX Firewall Software Release Notes
Note: Save and copy your configurations to a text file or TFTP server before any upgrade attempts. In order to download the freeware version of the TFTP server, Cisco recommends that you use TFTPD32 .
The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:
PIX 515E Security Appliance with software version 6.3.5
PIX 515E Security Appliance with software version 7.0.6
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
Refer to Cisco Technical Tips Conventions for more information on document conventions.
In this section, you are presented with the information to configure the features described in this document.
This document uses these configurations:
The document begins with a PIX 515E and software version 6.3.5. The configuration includes several options typically found in production environments.

This section descibes how to move the PIX software version 6.3.5 configuration to a new PIX with software version 7.0.
From PIX 6.3.5, transfer the configuration to a TFTP server.

Now that the configuration has been saved to a TFTP server, the new PIX with software version 7.0 can retreive the configuration.

The conversion of a PIX 6.2 or 6.3 configuration to a new ASA Security Appliance is a manual process. The ASA/PIX administrator is required to convert PIX 6.x syntax to match the ASA syntax and type the commands into the ASA configuration. You can cut and paste some commands such as the access-list command. Be sure to closely compare the PIX 6.2 or 6.3 configuration to the new ASA configuration in order to ensure no mistakes have been made in the conversion.
Note: The process for upgrading to a new ASA appliance is different from an upgrade to a new PIX appliance. An attempt to upgrade to an ASA with PIX process generates a number of configuration errors on the ASA.
Verify the newly upgraded configuration to the PIX 6.2 or 6.3 configuration saved prior to the upgrade. Compare each line of the previously saved configuration with the new configuration. Even though the syntax has changed, the device policies (security, routing, interface, and so forth) should be the same.
There is currently no specific troubleshooting information available for this configuration.
