Staring over with Cisco ASA5510 VPN

I have inherited a Cisco ASA5510 that I would like to set up as a VPN solution.

It is currently not being used for VPN and the previous admin has left plenty of evidence of botched attempts.  I do not claim to be any kind of Cisco ASA master but I would like to just get in and set the thing up with the ASDM for VPN remote access.

The problem is I cannot clear out the old settings.  Many of the setting rely on existing connection profiles and therefore cannot be deleted.  The profiles are connected to IP address pools which cannot be deleted because they are in use.

My question is:

How the heck can I get in and wipe out the VPN settings and start over from scratch?

Do you want to erase the entire ASA config or just remove all the VPN profiles?

The firewall itself is functioning well.  It's just the VPN garbage that I want to get a fresh start on.
Then in the ASDM (if you are using it) go to the CONFIGURATION -> REMOTE ACCESS VPN  

Start with Anyconnect and uncheck the "Enable cisco anyconnect VPN client" box at the top.   Then remove all the conenction profiles.

Then in the IPSEC connection profiles, same thing.  Uncheck the allow access for interface then delete all Connection profiles.

In group Policies, remove them all.  Its also up to you if you want to delete the DfltGrpPolicy and recreate it.  

Continue on through until you have cleared out any dynamic access policies, any customization of the clientless portal that you don't want.  

In the Address Assignment - Address pools, here you remove the ip local pools that were created.  

Continue on down through the Clientless SSL if that was enabled at all.

**  Remember to always get a backup of your code, Just in case!! **
