Backup startup-config and Image on ASA5512-X

Dear Supporter,

I would like to backup both startup-config and asa861-2-smp-k8.bin  from my ASA5512-X by using USB port.

Which command should I use to backup both startup-config and image by using USB?

And one more I have configure sub-interface on my ASA5512-X and I want to ping from any IP sub-interface to ASA.

So which command to allow ping from any ip sub-interface to ASA5512-X?

you can check my config as below:


Internet<--------------(int g0/0)ASA5512-X(Int g0/1)<----------(Trunking)Core Switch<------------Access Switch

Sub-interface is doing on ASA, Vlan is doing on Core Switch

interface GigabitEthernet0/1

no security-level

no ip address

no shut


interface GigabitEthernet0/1.9

nameif DB

security-level 100

ip address


interface GigabitEthernet0/1.10

Dear Collin Clark,

I'm very very thanks for your help.It is done for me. Your respone is very helpful to me.

I have one more question, but this question is related to anyconnect vpn.

Could you tell me which command should I use to configure anyconnect mobile vpn by using dual ISP on ASA5512-X ?

I appreciate very much for your respone.

AnyConnect on mobile devices requires a license on the ASA. Please check "show version" output to see if you have the AnyConnect for Mobile license installed.

If you do, you can most easily create a new remote access VPN by using the wizard in ASDM. It will step you through all of the necessary questions and build your configuration. If you're using Windows and OS X clients in addition to mobile, you should download the latest AnyConnect packages for those OSes as well for distribution from your ASA. The mobile clients should be downloaded from their respective marketplace - iTunes App Store or Google Play.

ASAs don't typically support dual ISP natively very well (i.e no dynamic load balancing etc.). You can setup a failover to secondary ISP by following the guidelines in this document:

And my question is I would like to configure AnyConnect vpn on Cisco ASA5525-X that is using two ISP ( ISP1 and ISP2 )  and after complete configuration user can use mobile or pc to remote to my ASA5525-X to access resource in my internal network. So if ISP1 is down, user is still access to resource in my internal network by using ISP2.

So, this senario can or not ?

If can, Could you provide me the clear configuration also step how to do it?

I appreciate with your help.

Thanks in advance
