ASA 5505 factory default

One of my clients has an ASA 5505 which was originally purchased with a base license and upgrades to a Security license. We need to wipe the thing clean and start over. My questions:

1. If we restore the "factory-default" will the device revert to the base configuration or will it maintain the Security Plus configuration.

2. If it reverts to the base configuration how might I preserve the security plus information prior to restoring the factory defaults.

Hello,

 

1. If we restore the "factory-default" will the device revert to the base configuration or will it maintain the Security Plus configuration.

Everything will get to the default mode

 

2. If it reverts to the base configuration how might I preserve the security plus information prior to restoring the factory defaults.

If you are talking about loosing the security plus features,just copy the activation key before doing the factory-default reset with the command:

show activation-key detail

 

Special note:Everything will be removed from the configuration file, make sure you setup a boot file before rebooting the box.

 

Regards,
