In Network Configuration Manager 7.6, we introduced the ability to use NCM to upgrade the firmware for Cisco IOS devices.  With NCM 7.7,  we added support for upgrading the firmware for Cisco ASAs, and if you've seen the NCM WWWO, we're looking to extend this capability even further.

 

That said, do you have questions about how NCM's Firmware Upgrade feature really works?  What do the "Collect Info" commands do? What about the "Upgrade" commands? Which commands are optional? And have you ever wondered how NCM uses the results from each command?

 

Wonder no more - introducing the new, hot off the virtual press NCM Firmware Upgrade Guide. Enjoy!
