Configuration backup for ASA

Answered Question
Apr 30th, 2007

I have a couple of questions regarding best practice for configuration backup. I have an active/standby pair of ASA 5510's. I want to be able to restore one or both in the event of a failure.

My questions are:

1) What is the best way to restore configuration if 1 fails? (This seemed to be easier on the PIX, as the serial cable pretty much took care of everything)

2)What would be the quickest way to restore if the pair failed?

I have this problem too.

The ASA 5505 adaptive security appliance, use the backup interface command in interface configuration mode to identify a VLAN interface as a backup interface, for example, to an ISP. This command can be entered in the interface configuration mode for a VLAN interface only. This command blocks all through traffic on the identified backup interface unless the default route through the primary interface goes down. To restore normal operation, use the no backup interface command. And one more thing : On the ASA 5500 series adaptive security appliance, the no service password-recovery ... load a new image and a backup configuration file:
