prepopulate the Cisco anyconnect client

I am imaging a laptop that will be used to deploy new systems. I have installed the latest anyconnect client on the server. Does anyone know how to insert the host name so that
it will populate automatically for users rather than having to have them type it in the first time? I didn't see any entry in the registry that saves it so I'm not sure where the entry gets saved.

There's a server list that's included in the .xml profile that's created for the gateway.  If you don't pre-deploy a profile, then the user has to select the gateway, and when the VPN connection is made, the current .xml file is pushed down.

Here's a snip from a profile:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<AnyConnectProfile xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/encoding/"

-- snip --

      </ClientInitialization>
      <ServerList>
            <HostEntry>
                  <HostName>vpn1.xyz.com</HostName>
                  <HostAddress>vpn1.xyz.com</HostAddress>
            </HostEntry>
      </ServerList>
</AnyConnectProfile>

Look in the AnyConnect Admin Guide, here's a link to the relevant chapter for version 2.5.

Do you know if this file is user specific or is it good for all users?

Not user specific.  It's a general policy you create on the ASA that controls things like whether the PC should do start-before-login.  Take a look at the chapter if you're able to reach it.
