I'm hoping that I'm just missing something obvious....

I've got a pair of ASA 5520s in failover mode (active/standby).  I've install the AnyConnect client on the flash in the Active 5520.  How do I copy the client from disk0: on the acti

Not sure if I misunderstood your question. You can copy the image to the standby using tftp.

I should clarify the question a little bit...

In my ASA pair, the management interfaces (where they keep track of each other for failover) are connected via a crossover cable.  There is no connectivity except to each other.  It seemed like the right thing to do at the time--no other communication would interfere with the 2 ASA's discussing their state.  So, the passive ASA has all of its interfaces down except for the management interface, which has no connectivity other than to its partner ASA.

I was hoping there was some sort of a "copy from my flash to my partner's flash" command...

I see.

Unfortunately you cannot have the primary ASA serve as a tftp or ftp server. But I believe you can sue https. You can get the image from the ASA that has it using url https://ASA_IP/disk0/filename

So you probably can download the image on the secondary using http for that path using

http[s]://[user[:password]@]server[:port][/path]/filename {flash:/ | disk0:/ | disk1:/}[path/]filename

as explained here

I hope it helps.
