In general the license of an ASA is tied to the serial number of the ASA. This means that there is not an easy way to migrate a license from one ASA to another. In the case of an RMA there is a way that TAC can move the license.

It might be worth asking whoever is providing the ASA5540 if they can work out anything about the license. In the case of a purchase there might be some possible concession on license provisioning. But in general when you get a new ASA you need to get a new license.

Rick is correct. The Essentials license for the 5540 is a different part number (and costs more since the platform can handle more clients).

When an activation key is generated for a licensed ASA feature, it requires the target device serial number to be provided to Cisco's licensing system for generation of the key.
