How can I backup the configuration of the ASA 5505 on 8.x and restore it to another ASA 5505 with same version? I have tried to save the running config to a file and then copy it to the new device and use the boot config: filename but it doesn't work. Or is there any other way to try? Thanks.

Thanks Andrew, I had tried it but I was having issues with the fact that I kept both ver 7 and ver 8 of the OS images on the flash. So it booted from the first found (ver 7) and creating confusion for me as the config file was for ver 8.

I noticed that it keeps the IP even though in the config file it has another IP assigned. Is there other things that I need to check that do not change apart the IP address?
