Hi All

I am attempting to use a perl script(via cron) to back up all context configs from the ASA to a tftp server

Due to the limitation of the ASA CLI, I can not back up all context configs simultaneously. As such I believe the script has to log(ssh) onto each context separately.

Can I allocate the management interface to each context, and use the same IP address in each context? (the IP address will reside in the same out-of-band network as the TFTP server)
