how to copy ASA5505 config to ASA5510

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
im not too clued up with ASA configuration so thought i would put a question out to all.
can i just copy a configuration from a 5505 and paste it into a 5510? would there be any problems doing this from a hardware compatibility or other aspect? The scenario is as follows:
i heard that i may not be able to do this quite so simply?

i need to move the passive(standby) ASA5510 from LocationA to LocationB and configure to match the ASA5505 configuration that is currently in LocationB. therefore replacing the 5505 with the 5510.
Then, that same 5505 needs to go back to LocationA and be reconfigured as the 5510 was previously. The primary(active) ASA5510 in LocationA needs to be reconfigured as the passive for LocationB.

Please let me know how i can go about copying the configuration from 5505 --> 5510...
thanks in advance.
