You probably need to call TAC to get this resolved, but in the meantime you could write the configuration to a tftp server. That way at least you'll have a copy of the configuration in case the device goes down.

Use the 'tftp-server' command to specify the interface and IP address of the tftp server, and then a 'write net' command to actually write the config to it.

Thanks for your response. I've the config and also failover ASA working. Opened a TAC case but just thought someone would have faced a similar issue and could throw some light on this.
