Backup ASA configuration using ASDM

                   Hi,

I want to backup ASA confifuration using ASDM: tools>backup configurtaion.

will I be able to restore this saved configuration on new ASA and run that new ASA??

I just want to confirm before doing it to avoid any loss of configuration.

Please advise for this.

Thanks,

Sap

Re: Backup ASA configuration using ASDM

while backing up you are asked what you want to backup. Select all that you need and a restore should work (on a same model ASA with same licensing).

The licensing is bound to the serial number and not automatically present on the new ASA. So if your old ASA is for example a Security-Plus, and you restore the config to an ASA that only has the Base-license, then your trunk-config can't be restored because the Base-license doesn't know anything about trunks. Same for all other features that need a specific license. In that case you have to make sure that the new ASA also has a SecurityPlus license.

I know new ASA with security plus bundle but how can I activate this license as you said license is bound to serial number?? do I need to activate or just program new ASA and use??

Thanks very much for helping me out.

Re: Backup ASA configuration using ASDM

If the new ASA has also a SecPlus, then that is ok. Did you activate any individual licenses on the old ASA? Like AnyConnect, botnet and so on? if yes, write a mail to licensing@cisco.com. If not, your are good to go.
