Import PIX 501 config to ASA 5505

Answered Question

Is there anything special that needs to take place to Import a PIX 501 (IOS Version 6.3) config to an ASA 5505 appliance or is it as simple as uploading the config?

I have this problem too.

Not it's not unfortunately because your pix is running 6.4 and the ASA 5505 will be running a minimum of 7.x code and there were quite a few changes. Note that a lot of existing commands would work but some won't. Attached is a link to a doc for upgrading from pix to ASA which talks about both a manual method and a tool assisted version -
