Applying an Updated Configuration to an ASA
Posted on 2014-10-27
I want to change a few addresses in the configuration of my ASA 5510. I want to edit a copy of the current configuration and then paste the updated configuration at the prompt in config mode. Is it as simple as that (after saving the new config and restarting the ASA)? I am pasting right back into the same ASA with only a few address changes in the ACL (I'm not comfortable editing the ACL list from the command prompt). Do I need to consider any checksums, cypto, secret passwords, banner text, etc? Do I need to reset anything?
In short, if I simply paste the updated config (provided I use the appropraite IP address), will I mess anything up?
