Hi Experts.  Working with a mid size company (3 VPN sites) that is in a process of switching ISP vendors(each site) They are using Cisco ASA 5505 on each end.  One site has a frame relay that will be transfered to VPN. What would be the best way to reconfigure routers for the new ISP.

No easy way to do this....   It's going to be a hard cutover.   Will you have modem access to the firewall console or some other secondary connection?   Will there be a competent person on the far end?   If not, then you need to build the code and quadruple check it before deploying to the remote ASAs.    

Remote's 1st, update the peer address.  Don't write mem.  
Then local, update peer addresses.  

Then the long wait until the tunnels rebuild.  

If everything comes up, write mem.   If not, then a asa reboot gets you back to the original config for another attempt.  

I've done a few IP changes with no secondary access and its the longest 90 seconds you can experience until the devices come back up....

Sure does take the pressure off.   If something is messed up in the ASA config, you aren't cut off from the console or the ssh....

Go ahead and post...  but the only thing you really need to do is change the IP address on the outside interface to match the new scheme and then change the peer addresses on each endpoint to match the new HQ outside IP.    

If you have remote access to each console port on all endpoints, then its easy.
