Are you trying to upload all config file including images/packages or just the config itself? What error messages did you see and whether the device crash during upload or after reboot (with the new config)? What is the available space?

Have you check the cache?

Hostname(config-webvpn)# dir cache:/

Tried to increase the cache?

Hostname(config-webvpn)# cache-fs limit [size from 1MB to 32MB]



What is the available space in the FLASH?

Did you try to increase

Thanks for the reply Dandy.But do you have any reference which says abt the max config file size on ASA.Pix there is a doc which mentions for max 2 MB

No, there is no available reference unlike PIX.
