Hi All,
I am using Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client and when I click on the link in my Start> Programs it opens with Only one host in the LOV and the host is an old one also.
How do I add a Host and Credentials and delete a host?

Thank you for the help.. Bill

It seems to be the manual means though I did not delve deeper. The forum shared using Profile.xml and adds multiple hosts by adding the nodes (e.g. under HostEntry section)

Separately ADSM to ASA already can add the profiles which the client can download rightfully

Thank you!
How do I create the Profile.xml file in that directory.. it gives permissions error.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile.xml
You don't have permission to save in this location.
Contact Administration to obtain permission.

I am suppose to have Admin abilities on my machine..

thks again for help, Bill

XML and profile files are stored locally to the users machine. The location varies based on OS.

Windows XP
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile

Windows Vista
%ProgramData%\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile

Windows 7
%ProgramData%\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile

Thank you btan!
I just changed the name from the JDeer-client.xml client file to Profiles.xml and added a new "HostEntry" section under "ServerList". Then I had to restart my PC to have it show up in the Dropdown..
I wasn't able to connect to the new client yet but I think I have the wrong password..
	
<ServerList>
		<HostEntry>
			<HostName>SSLVPN.mynew.com</HostName>
			<HostAddress>SSLVPN.mynew.com</HostAddress>
		</HostEntry>
		<HostEntry>
			<HostName>access.myold.com</HostName>
			<HostAddress>access.myold.com</HostAddress>
			<BackupServerList>
				<HostAddress>37.128.122.13</HostAddress>
			</BackupServerList>
		</HostEntry>
		<HostEntry>
			<HostName>access-dr.myold.com</HostName>
			<HostAddress>access-dr.myold.com</HostAddress>
		</HostEntry>
	</ServerList>
