removing AnyConnect for Mobile license from standby ASA

I recently purchased 2 AnyConnect for Mobile license from a pair of ASA 5510 firewalls. The firewalls are configured in active/standby mode. I installed a license on both firewalls. I was told that I only need one license installed on the active firewall and that the license transfers over during failover. Is this true? If so how can I recover the license I installed on the stanby unit so that I can install it on another pair of firewalls, in another location, that I use for remote VPN access. Please help. Thanks.

removing AnyConnect for Mobile license from standby ASA

With version 8.3(1) the ASA introduced the concept of a shared license between failover appliances.  I see you are running 8.3 already so this is true for your scenario.

There is no way to remove the license from the ASA manually, but you can open a case with Cisco licensing and ask them to re-host the AnyConnect Mobile license to a new serial number.  You will need the serial number of the ASA you want to transfer it from.

Thanks.

jjohnston's advice is correct.

Contact the TAC and ask for licensing support.
